The Kingdom of the Ice Bear

Event info


Bob Johnson ARPS tells us the story of his four week trip photographing polar bears from the Havsel, an old seal hunting boat. We will hear all about this famous old boat and her equally well known captain Bjorn Kvernmo and, of course, we will see the many bears that they found on the polar ice cap.


Bob says: This talk tells the story of my four weeks in the Arctic on an old seal hunting boat. The talk covers the story behind the trip, life on the ‘Havsel' and of course the many polar bears that we encountered amongst the ice flow. Our journey took us into the polar ice pack and within 450 miles of the North Pole. I knew from the start that I would eventually be telling the story of both the famous old ship, her equally well known captain and of course the polar bears. And so I spent time photographing the whole story.'
