Hasselblad-sponsored Project Pressure gets underway on Greenland’s glaciers

2015-10-05 A ‘workhorse’ Hasselblad H4D-60 is on an autumn mission with two top photographers/explorers to help monitor tidewater glaciers as part of a strategic new environmental expedition to Greenland.

The Hasselblad-sponsored Project Pressure  is set to detail glaciers in the southwest of the country and at each location precise GPS data will be recorded – allowing future glacial fluctuations to be observed.

Danish-born Klaus Thymann and Mariele Neudecker from Germany will be working together on the project, travelling by boat, helicopter and foot, shooting both day and night to capture vital images of glaciers in different light conditions. The H4D-60, which at its launch six years ago heralded the beginning of a new chapter in the history of medium format DSLRs, is still the capture device of choice for the couple who need supreme quality image results.

Mariele has spent years working with top scientists to produce work focused on oceans and seas and her work is regularly featured internationally at www.marieleneudecker.co.uk.

Klaus has a keen interest in environmental science and set up Project Pressure seven years ago. His photographic endeavour has been displayed in exhibitions across the globe and across various media, including Wired; The Guardian, The New York Times and i-D.

He tells Hasselblad: “Our oceans are little understood but we recognise that as glaciers and ice caps melt we could be disturbing the sensitive saline balance of the oceans – which has the potential to wreak havoc on currents and weather patterns. These are key reasons why we must monitor these tidewater glaciers and it is vital we continue to raise awareness of the negative effects of climate change.”
