About the project:
Photographer: Klaus Thymann
Nonprofit: Project Pressure
Agency: Mother London
Project Title: Project Pressure
Project Pressure’s goal is to visually highlight global glacial history before it is too late and publish the world’s vanishing and receding glaciers. To do so, Project Pressure needs imagery and video footage showing the organization in action, with elements of storytelling throughout to complement and enhance the coverage of their work.
Klaus Thymann will travel to Bolivia to cover the field work of the Project Pressure team and together with the creative team from Mother London, a list of required media will be developed. The images will focus on storytelling and in particular, the impact on the local population due to glacier retreat.
Mother London will help to create story-tool sets, paring images with relevant stories thereby creating an innovative communication package. There will be a focus on imagery and video to be utilized on social media platforms, narrated slideshows, compelling twitter pictures with captions and more.
