Product description

Review

"In 2007, Balog launched the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS), a long-term photography survey designed to make the invisible visible and give a "visual voice" to the planet's changing ecosystems. This EIS imagery is providing a baseline for revealing the geological impact of climate change and other human activity. It's art as well as science: the project's single-frame photographs capture the stunning beauty, architecture and enormity of ice formations. As a result, you can witness these amazing sights in Balog's new book, ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers. The 288-page coffee table book with a cause features 200 color photographs revealing the astonishing geological formations found in arctic and alpine landscapes at the far reaches of the world. Wise observations from environmental writer Terry Tempest Williams open the book, which is beautifully formatted by top-tier art-book publisher, Rizzoli." "Urban Times Online Magazine

".".Balog's volume is as much a disturbing caveat as it is a gorgeous visual feast." " American Photo

""Alongside the film, Jim has also realized an amazing book of still photography of glaciers....well worth your time" "Huffington Post

"James Balog's Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers is actually two books in one. The first showcases strikingly beautiful photographs of glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, Canada, the Himalayas, the U.S. and Canadian Rockies, and other locations around the world. The second consists of time-lapse photos that record the changes the glaciers experienced over a six-year period." "CNN.com

""Balog's breathtaking pictures show how erosian and melting temperatures taker their toll on the glaciers, shrinking and carving them. The result is dazzling to look at, but terrifying for the planet. The day could come when the only place we'll be able to see glaciers will be photographs like those in "ICE." Science.time.com
