Chasing Ice, Changing Lives


When photographer James Balog and a small team embarked on a multi-year “Extreme Ice Survey” to document 18 glaciers in remote regions of the world, he found what he describes as “decrepit old men falling into the earth and dying” - ancient glaciers, some over 30,000 years old, breaking open and disappearing into the ocean in seconds.
