James Balog: The Art of Ice Chasing

James Balog: The Art of Ice Chasing

For three decades, James Balog [“BAY-log”] has been a leader in photographing and interpreting the natural environment. He is an avid mountaineer with a graduate degree in geography and geomorphology and the author of eight books.

To reveal the impact of climate change, James founded the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), the most wide-ranging, ground-based, photographic study of glaciers ever conducted. The project is featured in the highly acclaimed documentary, Chasing Ice, which won the award for Excellence in Cinematography at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, was shortlisted for an Academy Award, and received dozens of awards at film festivals worldwide.

In this program, James shares the latest photography and image sequences from the Extreme Ice Survey. His images provide the “smoking gun” of climate change, visual evidence that audiences young and old can understand. In this visually stunning presentation, James and his team brave treacherous conditions—crevasses, rockslides, avalanches, temperatures down to -40 F., and frigid river crossings. His show provides a fascinating exploration of humanity's relationship with nature, and a profound understanding of how climate change is affecting our planet. It is nothing short of a call to arms to one of the greatest challenges of our generation.
