Photographer and adventurer James Balog will share his stirring and beautiful glacial photography revealing changes in climate at a free event on April 1 at 7 p.m. in Macky Auditorium. Balog is the subject of the award-winning film “Chasing Ice.” He will share never-seen-before images in “A Conversation with James Balog on the Art of Chasing Ice.”
Balog is the founder of the Extreme Ice Survey and the subject of the award-winning 2012 documentary film “Chasing Ice.” He is a Boulder-based photographer, but his work spans the globe documenting changing ecosystems through time-lapse photography stationed at 13 glaciers on four continents.
The event, “A Conversation with James Balog on the Art of Chasing Ice,” is hosted by Earth Vision Trust and CU-Boulder’s Inside the Greenhouse, a multidimensional project that explores the nexus of environmental science and the arts and humanities.
Balog will share his insights, images and never-seen-before footage while discussing his on-going work in a public interview with Beth Osnes, assistant professor of theatre and dance. Osnes leads Inside the Greenhouse in partnership with Max Boykoff, assistant professor in the Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences and the Environmental Studies Program, and Rebecca Safran, assistant professor of ecology and evolutionary biology.
