Far from a relentless white wilderness, carpets of wildflowers, dwarf shrubs and lichens bring colour to the Arctic in the summer months and migrant birds join exotic mammals such as polar bears, Arctic foxes and walruses in the far northern climes. This visual celebration profiles the flora and fauna of the region in a series of photographs ranging from detailed plant studies and images of birds and animals in their Arctic habitat to majestic views of the landscape.
