In a rare public appearance, photographer Gregory Colbert talks about the creation of his exhibit "Ashes and Snow".
Colbert's work, which he calls "a 21st-century bestiary," captures the poetic beauty in our relationship to the animal kingdom.
Colbert shows an 8-minute film, from the exhibit, of his epic swim with whales off the coast of the Azores.
He then announces his new initiative, the Animal Copyright Foundation, which aims to collect royalties from companies using images of nature in their ad campaigns.
