RECENT WORK: Swimming with Great White Sharks: GWS_0001

Isla Guadalupe, Mexico - November 10, 2015: The sun slowly rises as dawn comes to Isla Guadalupe, a 20 mile long isolated volcanic island off the coast of Mexico. Once a hunting ground for elephant seals, the island is now inhabited only by seasonal fishermen and a detachment of the Mexican navy. With seal hunting now illegal, the pinniped population has exploded and attracted a large migratory group of great white sharks that visit the island yearly. The shark's presence in the brilliant waters off the coast are so consistent, that Isla Guadalupe has become one of the best places in the world to swim with the great white.(Photograph by Benjamin Lowy for The New York Times)
