Un mondo diverso
From the project A family in the Arctic, the story of a year spent in Svalbard. An exciting and passionate testimony following the rhythm of seasons, encounters and photographs. A book that takes us to a different world, an invitation to reflect on our future.
THE NEW BOOK BY STEFANO UNTERTHINER
«I had a dream. Living in Svalbard. A year, maybe two, long enough to understand what the Arctic is and tell it in a book. I had never visited those islands, I had never been to the Arctic. Despite this, that illusion led me up there, in a remote archipelago “on top of the world”, to photograph foxes and terns, to follow the reindeer and to look for the polar bear.»
Stefano Unterthiner | From the Introduction
«Best photographic work on the Arctic I have ever seen!»
Rolf Steinmann, wildlife cameraman
«This is quite simply a most beautiful book. It is also a masterful evocation of the high Arctic by a photographic artist who has managed to reflect the immensity of the landscape, the harshness of the climate and the fragility of the nature that survives in this pristine yet changeable and changing environment. There are pictures in here worthy of the top galleries – artistry that is both profound and unforgettable.»
Rosamund Kidman Cox, former editor BBC Wildlife magazine
