Amos Nachoum has gone face to face with anacondas, giant leopard seals, great white sharks, orcas, and crocodiles to get photographs of some of the most fearsome creatures on Earth. But at 65, Nachoum, one of the greatest underwater photographers of all time, is about to face his ultimate challenge: capturing a polar bear without any protection. As he prepares for his biggest mission in the Canadian Arctic, Nachoum recollects past traumas in an intimate story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption.
