DICK OGG: FISHERMAN (USA)

A fisherman smiles while standing on the lower deck of a boat.

The ocean is his life and his delight. Dick Ogg fishes for a living; but whales do, too – often, in the same spot and whale entanglements in Dungeness crab gear can be the result. Dick discusses how his lifetime at sea has taught him that with collaboration, ingenuity, and much hard work, fisherfolk can help prevent lethal gear interactions, and still land their catch. — MJS

PICTURE OF HIS LIFE (USA)

Photo of Amos Nachoum standing with his camera, a furry coat covering his head. He looks across the cold landscape that surrounds him.

Wildlife photographers can shed a thousand tears getting to the right place, at the right time. Photographer Amos Nachoum is a legend in the wildlife film world, with extraordinary images of predators—orcas, sharks, crocodiles—but one of our largest and most fearsome marine mammals has eluded him. In this film, we follow his sometimes painful journey to finally capture, in a unique way, his elusive subject. — DM
