Multimedia Presentations

Screen Shot 2013-07-11 at 4.29.08 PMThrough the arresting visual evidence of the Extreme Ice Survey, EIS Director James Balog unveils rapidly changing landscapes that only a handful of intrepid adventurers have ever seen in person. His presentations are colored by his experiences shooting for some of the world’s most recognized publications, as well as his personal work on pioneering wildlife and nature photography projects. The result is a gripping program that stimulates the artistic sensibilities, spurs the exploratory yearnings and touches our sense of humanity.

“The work of James Balog is stunning. His observational and investigative film and print work on our changing climate is novel, meaningful—and disturbing. His time-lapse footage documenting the changes in glaciers around the world provides clear evidence of the warming of planet Earth. Finally, Jim is using many public forums to share his mission, to raise awareness, and waken people to the dangers we face unless we take action to slow down climate change. Thank you, Jim, for your talent, passion, and sheer hard work.”
—Dr. Jane Goodall
