THE COMPANION BOOK
In this large-format companion book to the film To The Arctic, award-winning nature photographer Florian Schulz takes readers on a personal journey to the remote yet vibrant Arctic. In contrast to the common mis-perception of the Arctic as a ‘vast nothingness,’ Schulz’s stunning images display an ecosystem of surprising richness, teeming with life. Following the cycle of one year, the book showcases a pageant of wildlife intimately captured among the rich, expansive landscapes of the Arctic.
“Florian Schulz’s breathtaking and intimate photography of the Arctic shows us why this great and seemingly infinite land running away to the north remains one of our last true wild places.”
—WADE DAVIS, NGS Explorer-In-Residence

From the Preface
In 45 years of producing films, I was still unprepared for what I found in the Arctic. In the far north, everything exists on a grand scale which is perhaps why I was attracted to the Arctic as a story told on IMAX screens, the biggest in the world.
Photographer Florian Schulz has worked many years to tell the Arctic story, to bring it to audiences who will never visit the Arctic, yet should understand its beauty and relevance. Florian’s camera artistry has taken Arctic imagery to a new height, and I believe he’s currently the most imaginative wildlife photographer around. —Greg MacGillivray
