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.

Reviews

Norbert's gift as a photographer is his great curiosity about the natural world. His magic is displayed in photographs that weave light, colour and action into a tapestry that tells volumes about life in the Far North. John A. Echave, Senior Editor, National Geographic Magazine 'It is, by turns, visually provocative, sumptuously beautiful and emotionally affecting.
Guardian (Nov 2007) Norbert Rosing is the best photographer of the Arctic working today

. Art Wolfe, conservation photographer 'Sumptuous white-on-white pictures by a top natural history photographer who has spent decades redording Arctic wildlife.
Sunday Times (September 2007)

'This is not only a superb portrait of one of the world's most fascinating animals, but also a testament to his abilities as a photographer.'
BBC Wildlife

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.
