The North Pole’s fierce beauty has drawn many explorers to its unforgiving environment. Francis Latreille is one of the intrepid, having participated in expeditions there for the last 20 years, and in White Paradise he introduces readers to the region’s inhabitants and surroundings, illustrating its dramatic allure with his photographs. More than a tribute to the Arctic Circle, Latreille’s book covers the growing threat to the North Pole’s very existence—global warming—and documents this phenomenon’s devastating effects, specifically the melting of the North Pole’s ice fields and gradual diminishing of its massive glaciers. It includes work from the famous Mammuthus expedition in 1999, where a virtually intact mammoth carcass was extracted from the North Pole’s tundra.

White Paradise is Abrams’ contribution to the International Polar Year, revealing with beauty and dedication this mysterious frozen corner of the world.
