A photographic journey through Baja California’s Pacific coast region.

Baja’s Wild Side features the breathtaking photography of shark expert and Scripps marine biologist Dr. Dan Cartamil as he explores Baja California’s Pacific coast region.

This exhibition chronicles a fragile paradise of remote and hauntingly beautiful landscapes, wildlife, and ancient rock art—on the verge of being taken over by modern civilization. From the high sierra to the desert to the surf-pounded Pacific, visitors will discover Baja’s little-known “wild side.”

Dr. Daniel Cartamil is a shark expert based at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. With more than 20 years of experience as a marine biologist, Dan is also an adventure photographer, environmental consultant, and avid conservationist. He lives in San Diego.

Dr. Cartamil will be giving a NATtalkon May 16 about his research and photography. This talk coincides with the release of his new book Baja’s Wild Side (Sunbelt Publishing), which will be available at the Museum store.
