closed Fabiano Ventura. On the traces of glaciers

The show

From September 15th 2019 to February 17th 2020 the Bassano del Grappa Civic Museum hosts the photographic exhibition "On the traces of glaciers", the great project created by the photographer Fabiano Ventura to document the effects of climate change on the most important glaciers on Earth. The exhibition traces the five expeditions of the project in Karakorum, Caucasus, Alaska, Andes and Himalayas, with a display that offers a direct comparison between historical and modern photographs. A sense of urgency emerges for the preservation of the glaciers, sensitive indicators of the health of our planet.

"On the trail of glaciers" it combines photographic comparison and scientific research, analyzing the effects produced by climate change starting from the observation of variations on glacial masses. With 6 expeditions made over 10 years, the project aims to produce photographic comparisons between images taken by exploring photographers of the late 1800s and early 1900s and photos taken today from the same observation point and in the same period of the year. The historical images in black and white, properly restored, are in fact placed side by side with the modern ones created by Fabiano Ventura with large format film machines up to 4x5 inches. The strong communicative power created by the photographic comparisons, together with the results of the scientific research carried out in the field, thus develops in the observer a greater awareness of the impact of anthropic activities on the climate, raising public awareness on the need to safeguard natural resources for the future generations.
