Explorer Daniel Fox has paddled through some of the world's wildest places in search of images that can reconnect his audience with nature—without humanizing it. His Wild Image Project brings wildlife up close and personal, asking viewers—ideally young folks—to reconsider their relationships with the environment. "Nature is raw, rough, cruel, pretty, beautiful, inspiring, but above all, a humble experience," Fox says. And that's a great thing.
Fox: During my tour of northern Argentina, I was invited to visit a rehabilitation center for wild animals in Candelaria. Among the residents were two jaguars. I sat down by the cage, only inches away from them. For the next hour, they showed me their teeth and tried to intimidate me. But after a while, after talking to them and showing no threat, the male laid down and relaxed.
