Conference on these living myths and their fragile environment, given by Daniel Rohrbasser, photographer passionate about the Arctic

Meeting a polar bear is an exceptional and moving event, especially if you are alone in a kayak, on skis or on foot, following in the footsteps of a polar bear. It is an extraordinary predator, the most dangerous carnivore on Earth. The polar bear is above all energy in its pure state and its whole life is an exciting story.

Sometimes only a few steps away from this living myth, Daniel Rohrbasser proposes to look, through the black and unfathomable eyes of the polar bear, at the evolution of global warming and pollution in the Arctic.

How does the polar bear resist all these upheavals? His intelligence commands respect in all situations, his difficulties in hunting on this less and less present and more and more toxic ice, sometimes his diseases, his threatening curiosity and his dangerous encounters with humans, are all precious links that evoke the fragility of the Arctic lands in full metamorphosis.
