Melting icescapes are one of the most visual indicators of global warming. As humans continue extractive and consumerist industries, our behaviours permanently impact the landscape, resulting in significant ecological impact—leaving an ineradicable ‘human signature’.

Melting Icescapes/Black Landscapes is a response to the glacial melt driven by climate change. Using the alternative photographic processes of salt printing, Lingam K captures the impending ecological collapse and encourages reflection on our relationship and impact on the landscape. The project visually articulates the passing of time through the fading of the salt print and the impacts of climate change on glacial landscapes.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
