Losing a Legacy: A Photographic Story of Disappearing Glaciers Photos by Dan Fagre
May 19 to Sept. 6, 2009
This photographic exhibition blends the science of climate change research with the aesthetic of landscape photography from Glacier National Park.
Losing a Legacy contrasts scanned images of prominent glaciers in the Park from the 1920’s with recent photographs of the same glaciers . Dan Fagre is Research Ecologist and Climate Change Research Coordinator for the Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center of the U. S. Geological Survey. He is stationed at Glacier National Park, Montana and is a faculty affiliate at the University of Montana and Montana State University.
Fagre has worked for the past 15 years with staff and collaborators in the Northern Rocky Mountains to understand how global-scale environmental changes affect our mountain ecosystems. He helped establish the Western Mountain Initiative, a program to tie mountain science across different areas.
