About the Author
Sue Flood is a professional wildlife photographer, who has been working in the polar regions since 1997. A zoology graduate, Sue spent 11 years with the BBC Natural History Unit. She worked on the series The Blue Planet and Planet Earth and the Disneynature movie Earth and produced films including Polar Bears on Thin Ice and Killer Whale. She left the BBC in 2005 to concentrate on her photography. Her adventures on more than 30 trips to the Arctic and Antarctic have taken her from camping at -40°C and living with Inuit hunters in the Arctic, to diving with leopard seals in the Antarctic. Sue is passionate about the use of still and moving images to engage people s interest in the natural world. She regularly lectures on her experiences of wildlife film-making to expedition travel companies and corporate organisations, as well as schools and universities, with the aim of inspiring people to protect the planet. Recognition of Sue s work includes the following awards. 2010: International Photographer of the Year prize-winner. 2009: International Photographer of the Year Travel and Tourism winner; Travel Photographer of the Year best single nature shot. 2008: the Art Wolfe (Best of Festival) Award in the International Conservation Photography Awards; Royal Photographic Society Silver Medal.

That said, I am reviewing a properly-purchased copy of the book (not from Amazon as they didn't have any for a long time) and it is just gob-smackingly beautiful from start to finish. Penguins to Polar Bears, and lots inbetween.
The London gallery exhibition it was released alongside shows some of these photographs in even more breath-taking details (see Sue's website for details.)
Did I say it was a beautiful book? Oh yes - I did. But it is.
