A photojournalist specialising in marine wildlife and underwater environments, Brian has been an assignment photographer for National Geographic Magazine since 1998, covering a range of subjects and stories. He has also worked on assignment for or had images featured in magazines such as Sports Illustrated, US News and World Report, BBC Wildlife, GEO, Smithsonian, Esquire, Audubon, and Men’s Journal.

Titled Ocean Soul, the exhibition showcases photographs from his fall 2011 monograph of the same name – a collection of his favourites from the last 20 years, and the stories behind them. Here’s a glimpse of what to expect:
