THE BERING SEA, WHERE HUMANS AND NATURE COLLIDE

Fishers and crabbers in such a harsh environment occasionally create opportunities for beauty.

The Bering sea, near the chain of the Aleutian Islands, is one of the most intense patches of ocean on Earth. Strong winds, freezing temperatures, and icy water are normal conditions. The combination makes for some of the most ferocious waves on the planet, where the water can rise and fall 30 feet on a normal day.

What drives a person there? The bounty of the waters. The region is one of the most productive fisheries in the world for salmon, char, and crab.

Corey Arnold is a salmon fisherman during the June to July summer season. But during the punishing winter, he's also a photographer, the rare expert who turns his camera on an industry he knows well.
