Close Encounters of the Shark Kind: An exhibit of original photographs
With Discovery Channel's Shark Week fast approaching, the adrenaline in this household is starting to increase with anticipation as it has every year at this time in recent memory. And now imagine our thrill at having the honor to be a (small) part of this year's lead show for the Shark Week line up, titled Shark Trek featuring our very own Dr. Greg Skomal and his important shark research being conducted right in outer Cape Cod waters. In honor of the weeks' coming events we are very pleased to be partnering with our friends at Nickerson Gallery in Chatham to share some of the images we have recorded of white sharks and other shark species in our recent travels.
The exhibit is titled Close Encounters of the Shark Kind. We hope our Cape Cod friends will visit the Nickerson Gallery, 618 Main Street in Chatham to have a look. All of the photography will be available for sale and a limited edition poster of a white shark patrolling Cape Cod waters was created especially to benefit white shark research here on Cape Cod. The show will run from July 5 - 12th concurrent with Shark Week and all friends are invited to an artist's reception on July 11th 5:00 - 8:00 PM at the Gallery. We will be present to share stories of how these images were recorded in most of the world hotspots where white sharks occur including South Africa, Mexico, Australia as well as in Cape Cod waters. Here is a taste below.....and in case you are wondering...NO seals were injured in the making of this image. -JK
