Project Pressure developed a new way of visualising the changes in glacier landscapes through photography in collaboration with Dutch film company PostPanic and geologist Erik Schytt Holmlund.

By sourcing images from 1946, 1959, 1980, 2008 and 2017 of the Tarfala Valley and the Kebnekaise mountain in Sweden, the team created 3D models of these landscapes through photogrammetry. Throughout the video, viewers can see the landscape fade in and out with each year. As the video progresses into more recent times, the devastating impact humans continue to have on the melting glacier landscape is undeniable.

In 2018 the highest point in Sweden changed, excessive heat in 2018 melted the South peak of the Kebnekaise mountain so the North peak is now Sweden’s highest point.
