Then flash-forward to the present day with the alarming photo exhibit Double Exposure: Aerial Photos of Glaciers Then and Now, in which photojournalist David Arnold offers updated versions of photos, shot between the ’30s and the ’60s, taken of various icy mountains and by the museum’s founding director, Bradford Washburn.
