Product description


'Her collection of photographs - including her 'one-in-a-million' shot of a penguin chick with a heart shape on its chest - will be compiled into a book documenting her journey, set for release later this month.' --Express.co.uk

'Few if any creatures on the planet are hardier than emperor penguins. Enduring all the extreme conditions the Antarctic region can throw at them, they remain majestic. Sue Flood has spent years capturing photographs of them for her stunning new book Emperor The Perfect Penguin .' --Outdoor Photography Magazine

'It was upon leaving the BBC that Sue found her true passion for photography, which has led her to releasing a book about one of her favourite animals - titled Emperor: The Perfect Penguin.' --Dailypost.co.uk

From the Inside Flap

Emperor: The Perfect Penguin is a celebration of one of the world's most charismatic creatures. In temperatures that can reach -50°C with 150km/h winds, the emperor penguins ability to survive and thrive is nothing short of astounding. Over the past nine years, award-winning photographer Sue Flood has journeyed to remote Antarctic penguin colonies to capture the birds in their native home. Sue Flood's respect for her subjects emanates from every page. From the poignant sight of an egg abandoned on the sea ice, to majestic shots of emperor penguins returning from the sea and heart-warming photos of chicks clustering together for warmth, every shot explores a new angle of life in this remote and ice-crusted world. As well as following the difficult journey of the penguins across the sea ice, Emperor: The Perfect Penguin narrates the hardships that must be endured to catch the perfect photograph. Sue's behind-the-scenes experiences prove that it is only with patience, endurance, and several thermal layers that one can capture magical moments on Earth's most inhospitable continent.
