The Shroud on the Glacier du Rhône by Klaus Thymann and Simon Norfolk
Every so often I republish here texts which have been earlier seen elsewhere. This is mainly to make some attempt to group my stuff in one place. What follows is an introduction to a moving group of pictures on the death of a glacier in Switzerland. It is a version of the text which appeared online in Granta in April of 2020, republished with thanks to Granta for allowing it.
