Il viaggio

Sulle tracce dei ghiacciai

The scientific photography project "On the Trail of the Glaciers" by Fabiano Ventura uses the contributions of photographers and scientists, combining photographic comparison and scientific research to analyse the effects of climate change, starting from the observation of glacial mass variations. To date, the project has analysed 25 glaciers in the planet’s most important mountain chains, such as the Karakorum, the CaucasusAlaska, the Andes, the Himalayas and the Alps making 74 photographic comparisons and 6 research programmes.

For each expedition, the project involves the replication of photographs, taken from the same vantage point and at the same time of year as those taken by the photographer-explorers of the late 1800s and early 1900s. The intent is to help develop a broader awareness of the impact human activities have on the climate through visual communications.

Here is a short story of the expeditions edited by Parallelozero and freely taken from the travelogues of Fabiano Ventura.
