To The Arctic

Image1\ \


In every season of the year, the Arctic pulses with life. Caribou migrate to the coastal plains in the spring to give birth to their young. In the summer, birds from across the world float on arctic lakes and wetlands. As summer turns into winter, polar bears venture out onto the growing ice to feed. Even through the long winter, coral reefs thrive below the ice. For To the Arctic, Florian Schulz captured stunning photographs that showcase the broad variety of life in the arctic - from expansive landscape panoramas, to the marvels of the underwater world.

Traveling from northern Greenland to northwest Alaska, Florian spent a total of 18 months in remote Arctic locations, photographing the stunning landscape and animals found there.
