Times Will Tell

Podcast: Capturing nature, one photo at a time

Environmental reporter Sue Surkes speaks with award-winning Israeli photographer Roie Galitz about his love for polar bears and the coldest parts of the planet

Welcome to Times Will Tell, the weekly podcast from The Times of Israel.

This week, environmental reporter Sue Surkes speaks to award-winning Israeli photographer Roie Galitz, who uses his lens to show how climate change is impacting animals in the coldest parts of the planet.

Galitz lives in Tel Aviv, and has spent years traveling to the North Pole,  Antarctica and other cold corners of the world, where he documents animals — polar bears are a particular favorite — and climate change as a result.

He wasn’t always an environmentalist, Galitz tells Surkes, but through his fascination with the animals in those places and the immense changes taking place there, he watched the Arctic warming up, causing dramatic changes.

“Photography freezes moments in time forever,” said Galitz, “it’s my time machine.”
