We illustrate changes to Himalayan glaciers through art, science, and adventure.
Introduction
Founded in 2007 by mountaineer, photographer and filmmaker David Breashears, the GlacierWorks team has made fourteen expeditions to the Greater Himalaya. 

Retracing the steps of pioneering alpine photographers and explorers, we have recorded losses and changes to many glaciers that are inaccessible to all but the most skilled climbers.

Our high-resolution gigapixel photography enables viewers to experience the glaciers as never before: up-close and with extreme precision.

Happy weekend, everyone! Here's a piece of trivia: can anyone identify this iconic Himalayan viewpoint? Hint: it has NOTHING TO DO with Everest!

Nicely done! That was too easy, though. Next time, we'll try harder.
