About this book

Language: German

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.

Summary in German:
In diesem atemberaubenden Band stellt uns der Fotograf Vincent Munier seine schönsten Bilder der Arktis vor, die er während der vergangenen sechs Jahre in zahlreichen Expeditionen in den arktischen Winter aufgenommen hat – oft allein und ohne Unterstützung. Hunderte Kilometer hat er dafür mit dem Schlitten unter extremen Bedingungen zurückgelegt. Immer auf den Spuren des weißen Wolfs, dem „Fantom der Tundra“, wie ihn die Inuit nennen. Von der grönländischen Küste über Sibirien bis zu den nördlichsten Inseln von Nunavut in Kanada sind wir eingeladen, eine Welt von faszinierender Schönheit zu erkunden, in der Bären, Polarfüchse, Karibus, Moschusochsen und Schneehasen den Weg kreuzen. Bis hin zu der unvergleichlichen Begegnung, in der eine Meute aus neun Wölfen den Fotografen einkreist! Über 200 einzigartige Bilder, deren weiße Sanftheit fast die Strenge dieser Wüste am Ende der Welt vergessen lassen. Eine lange Reise durch die Unermesslichkeit des hohen Nordens. In einem beliegenden Tagebuchauszug veröffentlicht der Autor erstmals seine Reisenotizen, lässt uns an seinem Abenteuer teilhaben und mahnt zugleich, die Fragilität dieser wunderbaren Welt wahrzunehmen.
