Description

National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry’s first encounter with a female blue shark off the coast of Rhode Island over 30 years ago was a galvanizing moment. “I was entranced by her rich, indigo skin, while every sense in my body was on high alert, my heart racing as I moved closer,” he says. “Drawing to within a couple of feet of each other, she barely acknowledged my presence and then vanished into the haze.” Since that moment, Skerry has gone to extraordinary lengths–and depths–to illustrate the beauty of these incredible and misunderstood creatures. His latest stories for National Geographic magazine explore the importance of these predators to our ecosystem and the dangers they face for survival. He’s made 14 trips all over the world to photograph a multitude of shark species, including tiger sharks, great whites, oceanic whitetips, and shortfin makos.

SHARKS: On Assignment with Brian Skerry will plunge visitors into the underwater world of sharks, presenting a comprehensive body of photographic work, highlighting Skerry’s unique combination of passion, skill, and technique. The exhibit will introduce visitors to several shark species and explore what makes these deep-sea dwellers unique, important, and, increasingly, endangered. Visitors will embark on a worldwide journey to better understand these apex predators and what it takes to photograph them, and hear first-person stories of close shark encounters.
