The exhibit features twin photographs of glaciers in Alaska and
Switzerland. The legendary mountaineer Bradford Washburn took the
original pictures in the early and mid-1900s. Writer/photographer David
Arnold took the current images between 2005 and 2007, from the same
aerial vantage point that Washburn first documented the beauty before him.
Brad Washburn (1910 - 2007), represented by Panopticon, was a photographer, alpinist, cartographer,
adventurer and president of Boston's Museum of Science from 1938 until
David Arnold is a freelance photographer and journalist who was a staff
reporter at the Boston Globe for 25 years.
"The pairing of the stunning photographs of Washburn and Arnold, with
lucid explanatory panels on climate change, will allow exhibit viewers
to both see and understand how dramatically Earth's climate is
