Renowned nature photographer shares his Arctic adventures

Daniel Cox stopped by The Lift to talk about the pictures that he has taken in the Arctic.

Daniel Cox has spent over 40 years traveling the world and preserving nature through photography. His work has graced the cover of National Geographic and has garnered international acclaim.

Dan has ties to Northland, growing up in Twig, Minnesota. His first book, White Tail Country, was received well in the area.

However, Dan’s mission has evolved from getting the perfect shot, “I wanted to see the world, and I couldn’t imagine a better way than doing it with photography, having a reason to keep being out there. And to bring back a good message on the conservation aspect of things.”

Dan is a part Polar Bears International- which has put a focus on climate change. Dan explains, “Polar bears are really a hook for the organization… to get everyone to sit down and to have a conversation on what’s really happening.”

The Arctic Documentary partners with PBI to document the changing conditions. More information is available on the project’s website.

Dan will be speaking at the Proctor Area Educational Foundation’s REA3D by Candlelight Dinner and Auction. It’s Friday, February 16 at the Greysolon Plaza Ballroom in Duluth. He graduation from Proctor High School in ’78. According to the event’s website, tickets sales are closed.
