Picture of His Life

Amos Nachoum is one of the greatest underwater photographers of all times. Fascinated by the most fearsome creatures on earth, he has developed a unique approach that puts him face to face with his subjects, without any protection. He has swam with and photographed anacondas, giant leopard seals, great white sharks, orcas and crocodiles, but now, at the age of 65, he is about to face his ultimate challenge: to swim face to face, unprotected, with a polar bear. (Appropriate for families with children 10+.)
