RECENT WORK: Swimming with Great White Sharks: 20151111_NYT_GreatWhites_1090

Isla Guadalupe, Mexico - November 11, 2015: A female great white, wounded during a violent mating session, swims past. The isolated waters off the coast of the volcanic Mexican Island of Isla Guadalupe, long a destination for fur hunters and sports fishermen, has long attracted a seasonal migration of great white sharks. The presence of a population of sharks is so consistent that in recent years the island has become a mecca for shark diving tourism.(Photograph by Benjamin Lowy for The New York Times)
