In this book, Philippe Bourseiller pays homage to the many spectacular icy deserts of the globe. His sensational images have been taken on every continent. All themes are discussed: the different types of ice and glaciers, their decline over the years, the people who live there, those who work there, the endangered fauna. An assessment is drawn up on the state of the ice today from a dozen interviews, lively and concrete, conducted with scientists who remain the first witnesses of the upheavals in progress. This book is intended to be the photographic memory of a world that is the real barometer of the climate change we are witnessing.
