Steven Kazlowski.

Traveling by boat, sled, snowmobile and on foot, photographer, Steven Kazlowski, captured the vanishing Arctic world of the polar bear. He accompanied native Inupiaq hunters on whale and seal hunts, and camped for weeks in temperatures below fifty degrees Fahrenheit to create a compelling look at the polar bear in its rarely visited and changing landscape. Join us as we journey beyond the printed page for an intimate gathering with Steven Kazlowski as he talks about his work to document the habitat of a vanishing species, shares his observations on life among the Inupiaq and the Arctic landscape, current ice conditions, and recent polar bear cub counts.

Steven’s photos have been featured in National Wildlife, Audubon, Vanity Fair, TIME for Kids, Backpacking, and Canadian National Geographic. Visit Steven’s web site at http://www.lefteyepro.com
