About this book

Published to coincide with the International Polar Year, "Vanishing World" is an unprecedented visual record of life in the Arctic. Five years in the making, this book is both a celebration of the wildlife that inhabits this harsh and unforgiving climate and a cautionary tale of global warming. Rising temperatures have put areas such as the Artic at risk and the livelihoods of the animals that live there are increasingly threatened.

Set against a dramatic landscape of ice floes and ragged mountains, readers will see the polar bears, foxes, seals, walruses and reindeers, who now struggle to live in this vulnerable climate. Images of a polar bear mother as she takes her newborns out for their first hunt, a seal pup only hours old, the spectacle of the polar night and the majesty of the glaciers and pack ice are a reminder of what is at risk.

Mireille de la Lez's stunning photographs are accompanied by text that explains the precarious nature of life in this dramatic climate.
