CIRIL JAZBEC. THE ICE STUPAS. ONE WAY TO FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE.

Art
In the last decades, people in the Himalayan mountain communities of the Ladakh region in India have increasingly become climate refugees forced to abandon their valleys due to water shortages. The Himalayan glaciers have been receding, and water scarcity has never been so severe. A few years ago, the ingenuity of Sonam Wangchuk, a Ladakhi engineer and innovator, brought about a beacon of hope. In 2015, he prototyped ice stupas, artificial glaciers resembling Tibetan religious stupas, which store winter meltwater and slowly release it for the growing season in spring, when water is most needed. The ice stupas should not be considered a solution to the challenge. They stand for a final attempt of the Himalayan mountain communities to fight climate change. Ciril Jazbec is a documentary photographer born in Slovenia in 1987. Before moving to London, he studied Management in Ljubljana. He obtained his Master’s degree in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at the London College of Communication. He has been working as a contributing photographer for National Geographic Magazine since 2014. His work focuses on communities that are confronted with the effects of globalization and climate change. An exhibition with NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC.
