Picture of His Life

Hebrew with Subtitles

Starting as a war photographer, Amos Nachoum built a 40-year career capturing stunningly gorgeous close-up photos of aquatic wildlife, from great white sharks, to killer whales and crocodiles. But one fearsome predator remained elusive. Setting out across the Arctic to fulfill his dream, Amos embarked on a perilous quest to swim alongside a polar bear and become the first to capture the encounter on film. His journey brings him face-to-face with painful memories that have shaped his fearless determination. This breathtaking, intimate portrait reveals a passionate artist and environmental activist who risks life and limb in pursuit of singular beauty.
