Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
When I bought M.Poliza's Africa I really liked the new fresh angles of animals in that book. The species list was pretty impressive, therefore when you turned a page you did not think that you have seen this photo in that book before. Exactly in that sense AntArctic was a bit disappointing. There are stunning photographs in there, but the topics are repeating and after a while you start to turn pages quicker to see if there is something new or not. One reason is that the descriptions of the photos are in the end of the book and picture of one iceberg or another similar one might be different as a story, but viewer does not know it unless he reads the last few pages.

As whole book is available at M. Poliza's website to look at, I recommend to check it out there before deciding on whether to buy this book.

This book is huge, so I hope you have a huge coffee table to go with it. The photography makes me green with envy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Antarctic: A Tribute to Life in the Polar Regions 27 July 2011
By Phil Koken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent photobook. Can recommend it, especially if you have visited both Polar regions.
Although i am a wildlife photographer as well, and thus rather critical, Michael's work is simply amazing and excellent. Many, many very nice pictures on a good viewable size.

Saw this book at Longyearbyen museum but since it was too heavy to carry it along with I ordered it right away thru Amazon, and received it shortly after I got home.

One of the nicest photobooks on both regions i have seen so far!

Cheers, Phil
2.0 out of 5 stars Not the quality I expected 18 Nov. 2009

I was really looking forward to this book, the preview shots were stunning, I was very disappointed. There are just too many "average" photographs in the book to make it worthwhile. I say "average" as a comparison to the pictures in Africa and Eyes over Africa which were both magnificent.

One of the most beautiful photography books I have ever seen. Amazing images and not cluttered up with words on the photographs.
