For the study, set up 27 cameras mode time-lapse in remote areas of Nepal, Greenland, Iceland, Alaska and the Rocky Mountains of Canada. The result has been about 1 million photographs taken as graphic evidence of the thaw who are suffering large glaciers. These are some of his most beautiful images:
