Corey Arnold


Through his trade as a captain of a commercial salmon fishing operation in Bristol Bay, he has continuously explored life at sea and the communities sustained by the fishing industry in remote outposts of Alaska since 2002. His photographic work traverses the relationship between man and nature as he documents the visceral experience of commercial fishing, urban wildlife and environmental issues worldwide.

Arnold’s photographs have been widely exhibited internationally including the Portland Art Museum and Annenberg Space for Photography and published in Harpers, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time, Outside, and National Geographic among others. He is represented by Charles A. Hartman Fine Art in Portland and Richard Heller Gallery in Santa Monica.

His monograph, Fish-Work: The Bering Sea (Nazraeli Press, 2011) chronicles the seven years he spent working as a crab fisherman in the Bering Sea.

Awards include honors from World Press Photo, LEAD Academy, New York Press Club and first prize at Pictures of the Year International for his 2016 National Geographic cover story: Unplugging the Selfie Generation.
