Short film released in 2015 by French photographer Vincent Munier.
The adventurer photographer presents his most beautiful images of the Arctic, carried out over the past six years during solo winter expeditions.
To offer us these photographs, he traveled hundreds of kilometers by pulling his sleigh in extreme conditions in the white wolf territory.
Inuit people nickname him the "ghost of the tundra ».
From Scandinavia to the northern islands of Canada, we are invited to discover a fascinating wildlife and world of beauty, where you can see bears and white foxes, caribou, muskoxen and snowy owls ... Until this unforgettable moment, where a group of nine wolves surrounded the photographer.
They didn’t have been shot since 25 years, but he found them though in a total remote place where no one had ventured for a long time. He walked across the arctic desert under extreme conditions (-47°C) for one month, accompanied by his sleigh, cameras, skis and tent only. With one goal in mind, living the most intense moment of his life, the one that he dreamed since he’s a little boy.
The final result: Unique images, whose apparent sweetness would make almost forget the harshness of this wild animal.
Bathed in an enchanting white magic, they transport us into a long and mysterious journey through the vastness of the Great North.
Vincent Munier is sharing with us a sample of this amazing journey and inviting us in the Arctic adventure.
Thank you for sharing!
