Travel Diary documents Poliza’s journey through Canada and the Lofoten Islands (Norway). Here, he photographed polar bears surrounded by greenery and flowers, in stark contrast to the normal icy whites we're used to seeing. The series is interspersed with photos of sprawling northern landscapes and behind-the-scenes shots of the photographer at work.
On 11 November, the photo series will be shown in the Foam Café, where you can also try out the Olympus gear used by the photographer.
This presentation is part of a roadshow of Michael Poliza's work, organised by Olympus. After Foam, the exhibition will go on show in a number of cities throughout Germany.
