The melting of the ice-cap is ineluctable, it’s a fact. In the Pyrenees, even more than somewhere else, nothing could stop or reverse tendency. Glaciers are going to disapear. What it is less, lost, it’s the fascinating power glaciers exert an hold on us. In front of them, we are feeling strange, mixed of fear, wonder and of initmacy. They seem to tell us something about us, of ours origins like a distorting miror. Glaciologist guide their falling until the moment when they will pull beacons and instruments out and will turn to other mountains, higher, probably more protected

"A steam cloud is hiding the face of a new explorer, boldness brother among all his predecessors. We have to be there, alone, while the ice is cracking and clouds are covering the horizon. We have to endure the inside death-knell for fear, danger of loneliness on a territory which is as facsinating as hostile. The picture we got is the result of an endurance, a stubbornness, probably even from a madness. It is a challenge, an excessiveness, an inconcivable part. What is the point ? used to say Beckett. The point is only this, answer all the artist facing the unrepresentable, the absolute, the introspective abyss. There is halos, magnificents glimmers, suspended ghosts as well as celestials cristals. Taking up to human body or by satellites from above the atmosphere, photographies of the glacier show a surface where reason and markers get lost."
