The Last Song Of A Glacier

As world leaders meet in Copenhagen to address the threat of climate change, some people are already witnessing its effects firsthand. U.S. photographer Julia Calfee spent several months in the Swiss Alps taking pictures and sound recordings to document the changes in a glacier as local temperatures rise.

During an exhibit of her photographs in Prague, RFE/RL spoke with Calfee about her impressions while photographing the glacier and recording its slow demise.

Very impressive. Sounds like the helicopter attack in Apocalypse Now!
