Caught one episode over the weekend on PBS and I'm planning to binge and catch up. But WOW. Not just beautiful work, but so important!

TV: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/rare/schedule/

If you want a look at what this guy does, here's some links and there is a book too.

https://www.joelsartore.com/photo-ark/

"The Photo Ark started back in 2005, when my wife, Kathy, was diagnosed with breast cancer. My career as a National Geographic photographer came to an abrupt halt as I stayed home to tend to her and our three children.

It’s been more than 10 years, and Kathy is fine now, but that year at home gave me a new perspective on the shortness and fragility of life. I was 42 at the time, and as Kathy recovered, one question continued to haunt me: How can I get people to care that we could lose half of all species by the turn of the next century?

Perhaps a series of portraits, made as simply and cleanly as possible, would give us all a chance to look animals directly in the eye and see that there’s beauty, grace, and intelligence in the other creatures we share the planet with. "

Some are SO good they almost don't look real.
