Polar bears congregate on the barrier islands of Kaktovik in northern Alaska every fall to partake in leftovers from Inupiat (northern Eskimo community) whaling before the Beaufort Sea freezes and they move on to hunt seal.
”It was a surreal experience,” says photographer Laura Keene, ”to be in the presence of these magnificent creatures.”
