Klaus Thymann was recently on expedition to Iceland’s glaciers visiting multiple sites jotted across the barren landscape. The mission was to create comparative images thereby visualizing climate change, glaciers are key indicators of climate change as they only respond to long term warming trends. The 2021 expedition revisited specific glaciers he had photographed in 2008 and 2011. Using precise GPS coordinates to locate the points of the original images he was able to record what had changed in the last decade.
What he found was significant, but unfortunately not surprising under today’s conditions. A whole front of formerly massive glacier is now meltwater. This is a stark warning about the climate crisis.
The expedition is featured in the 10-year anniversary issue of Port Magazine and was commissioned in collaboration with Parajumpers.
