John Weller is a critically acclaimed photographer, writer, and filmmaker based in Boulder, Colorado. Nature photography has been his passion since childhood. With his Pew fellowship, Weller sought to raise widespread awareness, understanding, and appreciation for ocean conservation, especially of the Antarctic’s Ross Sea. Working with a team of scientists and conservationists, he created “Ocean Channels,” a collection of multimedia narratives that combine marine and ecosystem research with photography, story-telling, and music to illuminate features of the Ross Sea and understanding of marine ecology. As another result of his fellowship, Weller also published a book, The Last Ocean, which features a stunning collection of photographs of the world’s only remaining pristine ocean, the Ross Sea.
