xRez partner Eric Hanson was contracted by Glacierworks‘ David Breashears to document the rich cultural and on-trail experience of the Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek in the timeless and spectacular Khumbu region of Nepal during the 2012 climbing season.
xRez Studio is partnering with GlacierWorks, a non-profit organization that uses art, science, and adventure to raise public awareness about the consequences of climate change in the Greater Himalaya. By comparing modern high-resolution gigapixel imagery with archival photographs taken over the past century, GlacierWorks seek to highlight glacial loss and the potential for a greatly diminished water supply throughout Asia.
xRez Studio was given a unique opportunity to spherically shoot and document the largest engineering project in the US, the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore Labs in Northern California.
