About this book

Language: French

Vincent Munier showcases his best pictures from the Arctic. He brought them from different polar expeditions lead in winter during the past 6 years, generally alone and with full autonomy. In the cold, pulling heavy sleds, he walked and skied across hundreds of miles on the territories of the white wolves: the "ghosts of the tundra", as the Inuit have named them.

From Scandinavia to the northenmost islands of Nunavut (Canada), we are invited to discover a breathtakingly beautiful, fascinating wild world: polar bears and foxes, caribous, muskoxen, Arctic hares, snowy owls… and even a magical encounter, when a pack of nine wolves surrounded the photographer!

Munier's unique pictures carry us away on a long and adventurous journey across the open spaces of the far North; their gentle, white atmosphere softens the real harshness of this gigantic desert, at the top of the world. And for the first time, the photographer shares with us his travel journal and personal impressions of the Arctic, one of the most remote and fragile places on the planet.

This lavish hardcover book comes in a slipcase with a slim paperback companion volume that documents the expedition itself.
