Shortlist, Fleeting Glaciers by Niklas Eschenmoser
To show future generations the splendour of the glaciers that once shaped our Alps, I photographed them from their most intimate side. Each picture tells a specific story of a glacier's characteristics. Together they form a construct that documents the diversity, the complex shapes and structures, as well as the unique colour of the glaciers. This series is a homage to the landscape I have learned to love, but which is disappearing in front of my eyes. This body of work is a portrait of this majestic but fragile and ephemeral world of ice.
