A photographic journey with a documentary and sensory approach in the center of the ice giant Aletsch, the biggest glacier in Europe (a series of 60 negative photographs taken on the Aletsch glacier, with four texts by interdisciplinary authors on the glacier: glaciologist Jean-Baptiste Bosson, art historians Federica Martini and Joël Vacheron and writer-researcher André Ourednik).

The Aletsch glacier is the largest glacier of the Alps. Glaciologists predict that by the end of this century most glaciers in the Alps will have completely disappeared and only bits of Aletsch will remain.

With Aletsch Negative, Laurence bonvin proposes an intimate, sensory photographic experience that troubles and questions our perception of colour, spatial and temporal scales as well as our own relation to the ice giant and its future, so linked to ours. Journey to the belly of the glacier.
