Canadian Glaciers, 2017
This series focuses on the glaciers of the Canadian Rocky Mountains, especially their texture, morphology, and readaptability.
The glaciers are considered prime climate indicators due to their sensitivity. In the many places, glaciers have now been reduced close to their minimum extent during the warmest periods of the halocene and some have almost disappeared.
In my work, I search to understand the place's constitution. My research are an alternation between direct experience and more distant analysis. It's necessary to me to physically travel back to this north regions to learn to see truly the landscapes, to read them, to better understand them. These landscapes are an open air laboratory where I find my inspiration.
These photographs show the ephemeral beauty of glaciers, the minimal forms, variations, tensions and pattern created by the snow structures and the frozen landscapes. The glacier movement tells us about our past and present history. They show us the fragility of a world that is disappearing before our eyes and question each of us about our actions and our future choices.
