Documenting the world’s vanishing glaciers and collaborating with artists to create work that inspires action and participation ❄️

Glacier melt channeled to houses at the foothill of Mt Damavand, which receive crystal clear and fresh water. #projectpressure #iran #glacier #mountains #climatechange #expedition #klausthymann #landscapephotography

Mt Damavand, Iran, from a distance, with the summit at 5,681m just touching a cloud. Ice cover is better on the billboard than in reality.

Sometimes the best vantage point to a tidal glacier is from a small iceberg in front of it. It is not really recommended to stand on icebergs, they can roll over and then you end up in the freezing water. Got us a nice picture though.

The Cayambe Volcano is the 3rd highest volcano in Ecuador at 5790 m located in the Cordillera Oriental of the Andes. At 4,690 m on its south slope you find the highest point in the world crossed by the equator and the only point on the equator with snow cover. #climatechange #projectpressure #glacier #mountains #volcanicsoil #landscapephotography #klausthymann #cordillera

A couple of years ago, Project Pressure director Klaus Thymann went to Mount Stanley, Uganda, which is located in the Rwenzori Mountains National Park, a UNESCO world Heritage Site. The peak and several other surrounding peaks are high enough to support glaciers. With an elevation of 5,109 m, it’s the third highest mountain in Africa.

Artist Peter Funch has created a series of works with RGB tricolor separation to show the passage of time in his landscape shots. Here on an expedition to Mount Baker. See his work and more at the Project Pressure presentation at the Museum of Climate Change in Hong Kong.

Donne Glacier descends the spectacular east face of Mount Tutoka in southwest New Zealand. The glacier has been undergoing rapid retreat this decade creating a new alpine lake. The National Institute of Water & Atmospheric Research (NIWA) conducts an annual survey of the snowline of New Zealand glaciers. In order to thrive a glacier must have at 50-70% of its area snowcovered at the end of the summer melt season. For NZ glaciers NIWA has noted 67% as the key to equilibrium conditions. If the snowline is above normal the glacier will lose mass, if the snowline is lower than normal the glacier will gain mass. #climatechange #projectpressure #glacier #mountains #landscapephotography #klausthymann

Director of Project Pressure, Klaus Thymann has undertaken expeditions to
many remote areas. Part of the reason for this is to show the diversity of where
glaciers exist and how climate change will have a global impact on water resources and
more. This image is of Mount Sabalan in Iran - a
dormant volcano with the crater now being a small lake that freezes in winter.

The front of Esmarkbreen, a tidal glacier on Svalbard named after Jens Esmark, a Danish-Norwegian professor (1763 – 1839) who contributed to many of the initial analyses of glaciers, specifically the concept that glaciers had covered larger areas in the past. Svalbard sits in the Arctic Ocean, which has and currently is experiencing significant effect of climate change. The artist Corey Arnold is a part time fisherman so photographing from the sea is only natural for him.
