SHARKS: On Assignment with Brian Skerry
National Geographic Explorer and award-winning photojournalist Skerry has spent more than 10,000
hours underwater exploring the world’s ocean with a camera to show why sharks need to be protected
and appreciated as an integral species within our ecosystem.
“SHARKS” allows you to dive into the depths of the ocean with tiger sharks, great whites, oceanic
whitetips and shortfin makos through large-scale images and videos captured by Skerry. This marks the
first time Skerry’s exhibit has been shown outside of the National Geographic Museum in Washington,
