A Film by Yonatan Nir and Dani MenkinExecutive Produced by Nancy Spielberg.

PICTURE OF HIS LIFE tells the personal backstory behind award-winning Israeli photographer Amos Nachoum’s long-standing dream to swim with the polar bear and capture the experience on film. As he prepares for his biggest and most dangerous quest in the Canadian Arctic, Nachoum faces past traumas in an intimate story of dedication, sacrifice, and personal redemption. The journey begins in Israel in the 1950s and involves the lasting emotional impact of military combat in the Yom Kippur war. This visually stunning portrait reveals a passionate artist and environmental activist in his pursuit to capture beauty.

Amos Nachoum’s photos and essays have appeared in hundreds of publications around the world, including National Geographic, Time, Life, The New York Times, Condé Nast Traveler, Terra Sauvage, Der Spiegel, and many more. His photography has won Nikon, Communication Arts, and BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year awards. Amos was honored with the International SeaKeeper of the Year 2019, an award that has previously been given to James Cameron, Prince Albert, Dr. Sylvia Earle, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Jean-Michel Cousteau, among others.
