b. 1976, La Jolla, CA; lives in Portland, OR
“Home for me is a place of refuge. It’s a stopping point; a place of calm shielded from the noise of life. For much of the year, my many physical homes are found in the quiet nooks below deck on fishing boats, hotel rooms, and rental cars parked off the side of the road. Less then half the year my home is my quiet house in Portland, Oregon. In retrospect, my live is a blurry quilt of many lives lived in many places. I’ve learned to appreciate community in these places, making the most out of relationships with fleeting moments of face time, and embracing loneliness like a marathon.”

A photographer and commercial fisherman, Arnold documents the ways of the sea and the people who work on its waters. His photographs have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, including the Portland Art Museum, and he has two books of photography published by Nazraeli Press. Arnold was recently awarded 1st place feature photo story by Pictures of the Year International for a National Geographic cover story, “Unplugging the Selfie Generation.”
