Mattias back from Galapagos

Mattias Klum returned from the Galapagos Islands where he has been on assignment for The National Geographic Society, together with camera assistant Lars-Magnus Ejdeholm.



A characteristic trait for many of the animals on these islands is that they display no fear of humans (or other land animals). Here a juvenile sea lion can be seen nibbling on parts of the photographic equipment.

During the assignment, Mattias shot images of both wildlife and the beautiful scenery with unsusual flora and sweeping landscapes. In the distance, the vessel that housed the team during their stay on the islands.
