In this culmination of twenty years work, world-renowned nature photographer Norbert Rosing takes us through the year of the polar bear, showing us that despite standing at over ten feet on its hind legs, weighing over 700kg and being renowned as a fierce predator, it is also a loving
parent and a natural jester. His stunning photographs and engaging text invite us into a world that few ever see and which is increasingly under threat.

About the Author

Norbert Rosing on Norbert Rosing.

My photographic career has been caused by passion for nature, animals and photography.


I was able to afford my first camera by setting up bowling pins in a bowling alley. In the mid-70ies I afforded my first SLR camera. Every weekend I took my camera to the surrounding mountains enthusiastically and started to travel to Scandinavia. These Nordic countries used to be my second homeland until the end of the 80ies.


The big turn of events came with my great project The World of the Polar Bear in 1988 and at the same time I switched to the Leica R system. Since then, I consistently pursue this topic and travel to the Arctic every year. This yields books, calendars, articles in magazines, exhibitions and participation in international competitions.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
