Bringing Science into the Picture

Glaciers are a symbol, they portray climate change in the collective imaginary and represent the balance of nature. Photographer Fabiano Ventura describes the iconic power of mountains and the multifaceted relationship between art and science. He also explains why he sees an opportunity emerging from the COVID19 pandemic, whereby the priorities and value systems that led to the current health and environmental crisis are being challenged.
