In 2002, Corey Arnold embarked on a journey of documenting the visceral experience of life at sea for commercial fishermen worldwide.

What started as an attempt to capture the surreal encounters he once experienced while working on a crab boat in the Bering Sea, led to a deeper contemplation of humankind’s relationship with the wildness and why it captures our collective imagination. Arnold’s photographs have been exhibited worldwide, including solo shows in Perth, Scotland; Kabelvåg, Norway; Shanxi, China; Knokke-Heist, Belgium; Provence and Le Guilvinec, France; and in museums and galleries in the United States. He received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California.
