Polar power wall print

After three days on a small boat looking for polar bears in Repulse Bay, Nunavut, Canada, Joe finally got lucky. The polar bear started to swim towards the boat, powering itself with its front legs, the toes of its huge paws spread wide.It didn’t appear to notice Joe, and for 20 minutes he was able to take photographs from the water. But then the bear caught sight of its own reflection in the dome port and swam up to Joe. ‘

 

'It’s amazing when a huge, powerful animal comes beside you.’ It came so close that its nose touched the housing, startling it. The second after Joseph took this shot, the bear reached out and touched the dome with its paw. Then it turned and swam away, leaving Joe with an unforgettable split-level image of a swimming polar bear – symbolic, he says, ‘of the power and elegance of a wonderful creature struggling to survive in a fast-changing climate.’
