The Arctic: Reflecting the Landscape, Wildlife, and People of the Far North

Autor:

Sven-Olof Lindblad, Elizabeth Warner

Some of the most stunning photography of the Arctic ever published--before it vanishes. Inspired by the success and critical acclaim of Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers, Sven-Olof Lindblad focuses on documenting the Arctic at the most critical period for the region in history--as it faces global warming and expanding international exploration. Unlike other photography books on this region that focus on a singular aspect, The Arctic documents imagery of the wildlife, people, and landscapes.Stunning scenery, magnificent wildlife, and native cultures bring the Arctic to life in this unparalleled collection of photography. In never-before-seen photos from the world's finest nature photographers, The Arctic introduces the reader to this region in three sections--the land and sea, the rich biodiversity, and the native peoples--and explores the challenges facing each in its rapidly changing environment. While celebrated in this volume, these stunning images are a dramatic and timely demonstration of the constant transformation of the Arctic at a most critical time. With accompanying essays based on real-time experiences by a National Geographic explorer, The Arctic celebrates the region's beauty--inspiring dreams of travel--while simultaneously sounding a call to action to save this distant world that affects each of us in countless ways. These photo-filled pages capture not only the massive sheets of ice glowing under the midnight sun, but also the Arctic's rich variety of other wildlife. Also featured are the many indigenous Inuit communities who maintain their traditional way of life amid this stunning and harsh natural setting.
