For more than a decade now, wildlife photographer and filmmaker Sue Flood has journeyed to the poles of the planet to capture the emperor penguin in its natural habitat. “They are, quite simply, the most beautiful creature I’ve ever seen,” she tells My Modern Met. “Whatever I’m photographing, whether it’s a person, animal or place, I hope to capture an evocative photo which hopefully makes the viewer feel emotional in some way.”

Her affection for these penguins is clear in the more than 200 photographs she’s assembled for her recent book, Emperor: The Perfect Penguin. Her aim for the volume is simple: “I hope [readers] will be interested and inspired by these beautiful creatures and their environment and want to help protect Antarctica. It’s thrilling for me to be able to document the natural world. Hopefully, the images in this book will inspire people to appreciate it.”

We’re pleased to share these images from the book, which you can buy here; you can also see more of Flood’s work on her website, or by following her on Instagram and Facebook.
