Academy Alumni Captures the Promise of Wilderness Adventure
Every summer, the remote camp fills with fishermen – and a few fisherwomen – who come to seek their fortunes in the waters of Bristol Bay, home to one of the largest runs of sockeye salmon in the world. Among them is Corey Arnold, Academy of Art University graduate and native Californian who runs a wild salmon netting operation from two small skiffs in the bay. Like others, Corey is drawn by the promise of wilderness adventure, the challenge of making a living from what he can haul out of the sea, and the pleasure of chasing a legendary fish. Unlike most fishermen, he is also there to take pictures. Best known for his images in Discovery Channels’ “Deadliest Catch,” the School of Photography
graduate published a book, Fish-Work: The Bering Sea
, had an article featured in Outside Magazine
and has been exhibiting his photos in galleries ever since. Corey currently has a photograph on display at the Haggerty Museum of Art at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
