A professional photographer by trade, Klaus states that it is important that Project Pressure does not make any predictions. Instead, they base their work on scientific evidence about how fast the glaciers are disappearing. Before an expedition the group collects historic images and information pertaining the area they are looking at, and they attempt to recreate the original images by photographing the same sites today.

Project Pressure aims to help raise awareness and engage the public through visual narratives that provide artistic impressions of the glaciers in their current state. People do not necessarily change their perspective based on scientific, says Klaus – therefore the creative element is vital. The team aims to officially launch the collection of photos next year through crowd-sourced funding, with hopes of an atlas-style book being published at a later date.
