About this Exhibition

More than a hundred million sharks are killed each year, primarily for their fins. Award-winning National Geographic photographer Brian Skerry has gone to extraordinary lengths to show us why we should not only protect them, but respect and appreciate them as integral species within our ecosystem. From Memorial Day through October, the National Geographic Museum will present some of Brian's incredible body of work showcasing the impressive fish in an immersive exhibition called “Sharks.” The exhibition will include large-scale images, videos, artifacts, models, and interactive experiences—all highlighting Skerry's passion, skill, and technique.
