‘Polar Bear Portrait’, north of Svalbard, Arctic, July 2016

I lay on the cold metal deck of the icebreaker that had been my home for the previous week. I pointed my lens out of a hawsehole and was greeted with this view, only feet from my face. This male polar bear had stood up on his hind legs and we were suddenly eye to eye, allowing me to capture this intimate portrait.
