Native populations have been surviving in the Arctic for thousands of years. Reindeer and caribou, seals and whales, bears and dogs that draw the sleighs, have made the nomadic hunters’ existence possible in an inhospitable world. Today these cultures are under pressure from the economies of the “developed” countries.

  • Product Description

    The North Pole, the magical kingdom of silence, has always given the impression that it would remain unchanged forever amidst its boundless tracts of ice. But the ice is beginning to melt, the icebergs of Greenland are breaking up and this legendary landscape, threatened by global warming, is gradually being destroyed. As early as the spring of 1987, Francis Latreille began to take photographs of the frozen waste

    of the Arctic, providing moving testimony to this alien, yet at the same time enchanting, world, and also to his admiration for those who dwell in these inhospitable regions, and their demanding way of life. Through this album, on the eve of the fourth International Polar Year,

    he pays tribute to the white paradise and its magical light, and to all those who live in or study the Arctic.
