"Wapusk" means White Bear in the “Cree” language (North American Native Nation).It was in Northern Manitoba, Canada that we went with my husband in winter, for a unique, rare and intimate experience with Polar Bears: every year in February, after a long winter spent in their dens, females emerge with their young, who get to see the light for the very first time.At temperatures as low as -57° Celsius, the photographs conditions were just as challenging for the photographer as well for the equipment.Book in English and French language
