About the Author
Bryndis Snaebjornsdottir and Mark Wilson have been collaborating on art projects since 2001. Their work, characteristically rooted in the north, explores issues of history, culture and the environment in relation to the individual and his/her sense of belonging or detachment. Their most recent projects use the relationship between humans and selected animals--the polar bear, the Greenlandic sled dog, the Icelandic sheep--as a springboard to posit questions on cultural and individual location in an uncertain nature/culture relationship. Their work is installation and process-based, utilising photography and video. Steve Baker is a research fellow at University of Central Lancashire. Other publications include The Post-modern Animal, Reaktion books. Michelle Henning is Senior Associate Lecturer in Cultural and Media Studies University West of England. Garry Marvin is an anthropologist at Roehampton Institute, author of Bullfight and co-author of Zoo Culture, both from University of Illinois Press.

I missed this book and exhibition when it first came out but stumbled across it as i was looking for polar bear images to use as stimulas for a school art workshop. My favorite ,most poignant images from the book are the ones where the polar bears have been photographed in situ as they were found, be that in dusty store rooms or stately homes or even in museums.These photographs as a collection tell a great story and expose something of our changing attitudes to the natural world and much more.
