“Odin’ is the best portrait of a Polar Bear I have ever seen. It’s a very, very powerful portrait. It’s peering down the lens with blood on top of it’s nose after being in the grizzly business of killing and eating”
- Chris Packham
Behind The Lens:
An unforgettable encounter with a male Polar Bear reinforced my belief in all life being equal. The Bear was devouring a kill, and would briefly lift its head from the visceral meal from time to time to assess its surroundings. On one occasion, as implausible as it sounds, I am convinced that the Bear and I locked eyes. As it glared directly down my lens (probably wondering why I’m so consumed by what it is doing), I was hit by a wave of vulnerability. Anthropocentrism regards humans as superior to nature, and as a race, we too often believe that we are the dominant species and exploit the natural world for our own gain. Although this is sadly true, a sure fire solution is a staredown with the Arctic’s largest predator to remind you of your place.
