Description
Hardly more than a decade after the invention of photography, the medium was already being used to document the ice-capped peaks of Europe, and explorers would later use it to capture breathtaking imagery of the polar regions. Not just an aesthetic pursuit, taking pictures of these regions has also been a valuable tool for topologists mapping these regions and scientists studying climate change. With nearly 100 photographs—including stereoscopic views—from the mid-19th century to the present, this book chronicles our fascination with the stark beauty of these mountains, glaciers, and landscapes.
