The Vadret da Roseg or the Roseg glacier is a significant glacier in the
Bernina Range in Grisons, Switzerland. Since the beginning of the
measurements in 1855 he went back around 4288 meters. This beautiful
glacier cave no more connected to the main glacier ice and is called dead
glacier tongue. The glacier disappears as a result of global warming and
this cave will disappear within the next months.

„It’s not about snapping or shooting a picture. It’s about the capture of a moment, just a split of a second, which is unique, and will not appear again.“

Benjamin Klormann is a self-taught freelance photographer from Zurich, Switzerland. Through his education in nature science, his work focuses mainly landscape and travel photography. His ambition to capture as far as possible unspoiled Landscape leads him to the most remote places around the world. Through this each of his photographs reflects unique moment on this planet.

Born 1987 in the South-west of Germany he decided in younger years to do an education in nature science instead of photography. Back in 2014 when he rediscovers his passion for hiking he bought after many years with a small compact cam his first DSLR. Since then the photography stayed a strong part in his life. His philosophy is about to capture the moment and this reflect in the way he works. He only shot Single Images and do a normal development of the image without any manipulation. Nowadays he worked together with many partners, received various awards and had publications and exhibitions.
