Fred Bruemmer

Fred Bruemmer, D.Litt. (; June 26, 1929 – December 17, 2013) was a Latvian Canadian nature photographer and researcher. He spent his life travelling extensively throughout the circumpolar regions and to other remote parts of the globe. His works have been centered mostly on the Arctic, its people and its animals. He also conducted research and published on animals in many other areas of the globe. He spoke nine languages and wrote more than a thousand articles for publications around the world, including ''Canadian Geographic'', ''Natural History'', ''National Geographic'' and ''Smithsonian''. Fred Bruemmer lived in Montreal, Quebec.

Born Friedrich Karl von Brümmer () in Riga, Latvia, to a Baltic-German family, he emigrated to Canada in 1951 and became a citizen in 1956. His book ''Survival - A Refugee Life'', published in 2005, talks about the harrowing ordeals the young Bruemmer went through during World War II, which led him from his Latvian birthplace to eventual immigration to Canada.

His 1964 photo of a white harp seal pup became an icon and was among 51 photos chosen in the book ''Photographs that Changed the World''.
