Among the early North American explorers in the Rogers Pass, Yoho and Banff regions of western Canada were members of the Vaux family of Philadelphia. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, George Vaux Jr. (1863–1927), William S. Vaux (1872–1908) and Mary M. Vaux (1880–1940) regularly visited the majestic peaks, studying the massive glacier formations and creating a brilliant photographic record that features some of the earliest images of glaciers in the mountains of western Canada.

Beginning in 1997, Henry Vaux Jr. has been taking duplicate photographs of the glaciers his grandfather and great aunt and uncle captured on glass plates a century before. Standing in exactly the same locations with his own tripod and camera, Henry Vaux Jr. has documented a century of change and created an extraordinary artistic and historical document that will inspire many and tell a story that was three generations in the making.

This project serves as a remarkable collection of “before and after” photographs of glacier formations in the Canadian Alps, dramatically capturing the impact of climate change on this profoundly important and iconic landscape.
