About this book

Language: German

Norbert Rosing is considered Germany's Arctic and polar bear expert. During two decades he crossed the Canadian Arctic and Spitsbergen on countless journeys to reflect on the fascination of this magnificent habitat. He spent many years in Churchill / Manitoba, "the polar bear capital", to document the lives of these animals. His pictures of a mother polar bear with her cubs went around the whole world. But also rare footage of arctic foxes, arctic hares or earless seals contributed to his fame.

This book represents the quintessence of his nearly 50 trips in the Canadian north and gathers the best shots from the period 1988-2007. In addition to the iconic images, this monumental illustrated volume, measuring 38 × 33 cm, also presents previously unreleased material in excellent quality: fascinating documents of a photographic adventure, and breathtaking images of a disappearing world whose magic can be difficult to resist. This is a tribute to one of the best wildlife and nature photographer in Germany and an unparalleled collection of his best pictures.

Summary in German:
Norbert Rosing gilt als der Arktis- und Eisbärenkenner Deutschlands. Zwei Jahrzehnte durchquerte er auf zahllosen Reisen die kanadische Arktis und Spitzbergen, um die Faszination dieses großartigen Lebensraums abzubilden. Er verbrachte viele Jahre in Churchill/Manitoba, der „Hauptstadt der Eisbären“, um das Leben dieser Tiere zu dokumentieren. Seine Bilder einer Eisbärenmutter mit ihren Jungen gingen um die ganze Welt. Aber auch seltene Aufnahmen von Polarfüchsen, Schneehasen oder Robben trugen zu seiner Bekanntheit bei.

Dieses Buch stellt die Quintessenz seiner knapp 50 Reisen in den kanadischen Norden dar und versammelt die besten Aufnahmen aus der Zeit von 1988-2007. Neben den Ikonenbildern zeigt der monumentale Bildband auch bisher unveröffentlichtes Material in einer exzellenten Qualität. Faszinierende Dokumente eines fotografischen Abenteuers, atemberaubende Bilder einer verschwindenden Welt, deren Magie man sich nur schwer entziehen kann. Eine Hommage an einen der besten Tier- und Naturfotografen Deutschlands und eine unvergleichliche Kollektion seiner schönsten Bilder.
