Fiona Bunn, a landscape photographer and alpinist, has been traveling to the Alps for over 25 years. Her alpine photography work has been frequently shared on social media, including The Alpine Club as well as Zermatt Tourism. Her work was recently included in an exhibition for a second time at The Brick Lane Gallery in the Shoreditch district of London’s East End. The exhibition featured the relationship between photographers and alpinists. Fi finds the worldwide alpine community to be supportive, with a desire to appreciate and express their interest in art. She wrote “my aim is that my work highlights this vibrant, friendly, international community, who celebrate a shared interest for alpine exploration which literally crosses borders.” In addition, Fi is also concerned about climate change and glacial retreat. In her travels she has seen a large reduction in the size of glaciers firsthand. In an email she told GlacierHub,”I hope that my photos of these amazing mountains and glaciers perhaps help focus attention on how environmentally essential they are.”
