James Balog Multimedia Presentations & Exhibitions


Through 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.
