Ice is Black

A comprehensive survey of Arctic landscapes and wildlife

The perfect gift for anyone with an interest in animals, landscapes, nature photography, and adventure travel

A visual journey that presents natural beauty alongside a call to action to protect these environments


From majestic glaciers to vast frozen plains as far as the eye can see, ice is just as important to the world’s ecosystems as water, air, and trees. And yet its presence and vital role on Earth is increasingly threatened by the effects of global warming and population growth—the inspiration behind French photographer Laurent Baheux’s latest endeavor, Ice is Black. Through breathtaking black-and-white images, Baheux captures the world’s most beautiful icy landscapes and the fascinating animals that inhabit them. We get close to creatures and landscapes that seem to be taken out of time. Taken in such far-flung lands as Norway, Iceland, and Canada, Baheux’s images present polar bears and their cubs, foxes frolicking in snow, and seals navigating icy waters. While the photographs convey evocative beauty, they also act as a call to action to protect these magnificent icy lands and the creatures that rely on them.

LAURENT BAHEUX is a French nature photographer and activist who is the author of The Family Album of Wild Africa, published by teNeues in 2015. In addition to the consciousness-raising that is inherent in his photographic work, he accompanies and supports the deeds of organizations such as the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) that work for the protection of nature and the preservation of biodiversity. His mission is to inspire those who witness his works not only to marvel at them, but also to take action.
