Douglas Mandry’s work presents a critical view on the state of the natural world. For his series Monuments, the Swiss artist journeyed to the receding glaciers of his home country to observe how modern technologies are protecting these dwindling giants. Here the artist talks about the history and importance of lithographic printing – a process that allows him to print found photographs onto the same reflective geothermal blankets that protect the glaciers on which he walked.
