Mount Aragats is both the highest point in Armenia, a beautiful national symbol and a popular destination for tourists. Toby Smith and Project Pressure will complete a summer expedition to circumnavigate and summit Mount Aragats, documenting the stunning landscapes, historical sites and incredible panoramic views. The results will be geo-tagged and published online as part of the Project Pressure archive. Lake Sevan, the ‘recreational and economic heart’ of Armenia will then be explored to create a vivid portrait of this country’s landscape.

The interview with charity director Klaus Thymann charts recent successful expeditions as well as the future development of the charity. It also highlights some of the fantastic contributions made to the archive last year, from Fox Glacier in New Zealand to Eqalorutsit Glacier in South Greenland.

Simon Norfolk’s contribution to the Project Pressure archive documenting Lewis Glacier in Kenya won in the landscape category of the Sony World Photography Award last year. We hope to continue producing award winning artwork, with four new artists adding to our roster of talented contributors.

Looking back over 2015 we are proud to have successfully completed expeditions to New Zealand, Greenland and USA. Support came in kind from our generous sponsors Rab and Hasselblad, alongside new contributions from Orgreen Optics and Casio. Follow us on Instagram as we review Peter Funch’s expedition to Mount Rainier in Washington, USA.

This year looks set to be a great one; with new contributions from some amazing artists. Including Scott Conarroe, who will continue his documentation of glaciers across the European Alps. We are also aiming to develop the MELT platform that will host the archive, currently running as a beta version.
