This book showcases Munier's best images from the Arctic and spans six years of his expeditions to polar places, most often made alone and with full autonomy.
In the cold, he pulled heavy sleds and trekked and skied hundreds of miles on the territories of the white wolves: the « ghosts of the tundra », as the Inuit have named them. He also captured the lives of polar bears, foxes, caribou, musk oxen, Arctic hares and snowy owls in the white and frozen vastness of this region.
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 the most remote and fragile places on the planet.
