Photographer’s beautiful images show how penguins survive the Antarctic climate

These beautiful photographs show how penguins survive the relentless Antarctic climate.

In a new book, nature photographer and filmmaker Stefan Christmann tells stories of the everyday life of the animals. 

Penguin (A Story of Survival) – a book that’s been eight years in the making – shows how Antarctica’s most iconic bird manages to create a home in one of the most hostile habitats on Earth – which can reach temperatures of -49C.

For the book, Stefan followed a penguin colony in Antarctica for 23 months, capturing different stages of their lives.

His photos document penguin behaviour alongside the hostile ice landscapes.

Stefan’s incredible images of Antarctica and of the emperor penguin colony of Atka Bay have been published in National Geographic and BBC Wildlife Magazine, as well as in many other publications worldwide.

They also won the NHM Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio Award in 2019.

Through his book, Stefan is also keen to highlight the need for their protection. 

PENGUIN – A Story of Survival by Stefan Christmann, is published by teNeues.
