Extreme Ice Survey

Founded in 2007 by James Balog, the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) is an innovative, long-term photography project that merges art and science to give a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems. EIS imagery preserves a visual legacy, providing a unique baseline—useful in years, decades and even centuries to come—for revealing how climate change and other human activity impacts the planet.

"ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers" Finalist for BOTYA (Book of the Year Award)

ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers by James Balog was released September 11, 2012 by Rizzoli New York, the world-renowned publisher of art books. Terry Tempest Williams, one of America's most distinguished environmental writers and thinkers, contributes the epilogue. In this kaleidoscopic view of remote Arctic and alpine landscapes, ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers celebrates a realm of exquisite beauty at the same time as it reveals how climate change is altering our world. Selected from the million-strong EIS photo archive, ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers celebrates the art and architecture of ice. We see stupendous ice sheets transformed by the sun, seawater and time, until they become small, glittering diamonds melting into the ever-rising global ocean. Hardcover 13" x 10", 288 pages, US $50.00, CAN $50.00, ISBN: 978-0-8478-3886-0. Order via Amazon.com or BN.com.
