On the Trail of the Glaciers
Exploring the past for a sustainable future
Our vision
Our work strives to nurture greater ecological awareness

We use the technique of comparative photography, a technique that combines the power of images to communicate with rigorous historical and scientific research. Photographs chronicling the retreat of the earth’s largest mountain glaciers and scientific evidence are combined to highlight the extraordinary changes in climate that our planet is undergoing, and of the urgent need to take all possible actions to limit the consequences.
