In pursuit of these stunning shots, the photographer endured 117 hours in extreme cold conditions

Every year, between February and March, the enchanting spectacle of polar bears stepping out with their cubs unfolds in Canada’s Wapusk National Park.

When this annual event occurred, seasoned photographer Daisy Gilardini seized the opportunity to capture the inaugural moments of the cubs.

Undeterred by the challenging conditions, she patiently stationed herself outside the bears’ cave for 13 days, enduring 117 hours of relentless waiting, even in temperatures as low as 50 degrees Celsius.

Gilardini’s dedication resulted in a unique documentation of the polar bear families’ first ventures into the outside world.
