Posted on October 12 2018
Within the space of 9 years, through 5 expeditions to the most important mountain glaciers of the Earth, Fabiano Ventura, together with a team of researchers, has followed the traces of the first explorers of late '800 and early' 900 to make new photographs portrayed from the same geographical spot and the same year's period of the past.
The project documents the effects of climate change that allows important scientific measurements starting from the observation of variations in glacial masses.
The comparison of the images become important indicators of the climatic changes taking place on our planet, images that will contribute to develop a greater awareness of the impact of human activities on the environment.
Fabiano Ventura explains that the project Uses the photographic comparison as a tool that combines the communicative power of images with the rigor of historical and scientific research, the images, which testify the retreat of the largest mountain glaciers of the Earth, together with the scientific datas gathered, provide an immediate idea of the extraordinary climatic variations that our planet is experiencing, and confirm how urgent all possible actions are,in order to limit the consequences.The dissemination of datas gathered through the project will contribute to the promotion of economic policies compatible with the safeguarding of natural resources for future generations.
Expeditions since 2009
