From swimming with grizzly bears in the Pacific Northwest, to dropping a $6 million robotic submersible down onto the Gulf of St. Lawrence seafloor, to chatting with Inuit in the Canadian Arctic wind at -50℃, Neil Ever Osborne is constantly pushing the limits of his craft to create visually impactful conservation campaigns that express the important link between people and planet.
Along the way, he's experienced misadventures, happy accidents, and moments of profound connection — with elders in Ecuador’s fragile rainforests, cod-kissing fishermen on the East coast of Canada, a farmer who lives with penguins in his backyard. In their voices, Osborne reflects, “We understand a little bit more about how this crazy world works, and how inherently connected we are to the living planet.”
Osborne’s work is deeply rooted in a documentary approach that bears witness to humanity’s ecological footprint. All the while, he uses visual storytelling to start a dialogue around an idea he believes is of the utmost importance to the future of planet Earth: we’re not separate from nature, but very much a part of it.
