CIRCA 1983
The Photography of Owen Perry

Glacier

"Glaciers are alive. They move. They make noise. I swear I’ve even heard them talk."

– Guy Clarkson, Mountain Guide, Pilot, Nature Cinematographer

A series of photos studying glacier formations and landscapes in British Columbia and Yukon. Given the inevitable and increased effects of climate change, the existence of these bodies of ancient ice and snow is in jeopardy. Although originally capturing glaciers for their majestic beauty, this ongoing project has adopted an environmental and documentary approach.
