For most of his life wildlife photographer Florian Schulz has fought to protect the diversity of animals species around the world. Working in the most remote region of the planet he’s tracked and documented the wild birds of Mexico, big game animals of the African continent as well as the migratory patterns of caribou in the Alaskan Arctic. And it’s in this frozen region known for its vast featureless landscapes where Florian has followed and photographed the great Polar Bears of the northern hemisphere. Florian: It’s really a land of...

Adventure Media Review, Art, Slacklining / 06.02.2012

An inspiring new painting is now available in print reproduction. ‘Perfect Balance’ by artist Brandon Kralik is a stark representation of the human spirit in pursuit of pure adventure.

Free of the adrenaline-induced bravado of extreme sport culture Kralik’s rendering prompts the viewer to look within to explore the deep recesses of one’s own ambition and the numbing fear that often stifles it. “The feeling is subjective but my...
