Description


The Bernese Alps of the Swiss Alps contain renowned and iconic scenery in Switzerland, including the Jungfrau, Eiger, and M nch, standing tall over Grindelwald and Interlaken. The range is also an epicenter of the largest glacier in Continental Europe, at 23 kilometers long, with a host of many other significant alpine glaciers. All of them are melting and doing so rapidly, succumbing to the realities of climate change. Recent Swiss university studies indicate that only one will remain as a sliver of its present majestic size by 2100. "Glaciers of the Bernese Alps" is a comprehensive work containing close and intimate aerial images of nearly all remaining glacial features in the range, taken from a small antique airplane manufactured in 1949. His second major glacial work, Garrett Fisher piloted the airplane, took the photographs, and wrote the text, a book dedicated to the beauty of these alpine features which are rapidly disappearing. Containing 178 images, viewers are shown glaciers from angles that would take a lifetime to savor on the ground, a lifetime that we do not have before they will be gone.
