Elements — Icy Cocoon

— Feeling small in front of Nature, that’s what I felt when I entered the Zinal’s ice cave! It was several years that I dreamed to photograph such a place and here it is! Blue, soft but structured with a high ceiling, simply exceptional.

I had to come back three times before reaching my goal. Finally, in January 2022, after more than 2 hours of walking, I finally arrived in front of the cave of the Zinal glacier. I didn’t know where to start my pictures! But I absolutely wanted to make one with my friend, so that we could see how small the human being is compared to nature.

As the glacier is in constant motion, the cave changes its appearance regularly. I hope to be able to return next year to capture its unique essence. These places are becoming more and more rare and inaccessible, due to global warming. In Switzerland, we are still very lucky to have several large glaciers, but almost all of them are losing their size every year.
