In July 2019, the hottest July on record, I walked through the European Alps to work on a new project which deals with the effects of climate change in the alpine landscape. Glacier retreat is one of the most visible consequences of temperature rise in the 20th and 21st century.
Instead of photographing the vanishing glaciers I photographed what they had become – water. Hundreds of glacial lakes emerge in the Alps. Their serene and beautiful appearances serve as a silent reminder of what they once were. What remains is a collection of water and a reflection of the world.
All images are shown upside down, consequently depicting an upright image of a mirrored landscape.
