Some of the stunning images that can be found in ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers a book by James Balog about his ongoing photography project.

About the project and book:

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.

EIS installed time-lapse cameras at remote sites in Greenland, Iceland, Nepal, Alaska, Antarctica, and the Rocky Mountains and conducts episodic repeat photography in Iceland, Canada, the French and Swiss Alps, and Bolivia; and has been the subject of an award-winning feature documentary, Chasing Ice, a NOVA/PBS documentary, two books, and numerous magazine and newspaper features. In addition, EIS has been alerting the world about ice and climate change via appearances before Washington policymakers, a touring exhibition, displays in public venues (including Denver International and O’Hare International Airports) and multimedia presentations at corporate, scientific, and global policy conferences. ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers, (Rizzoli International) was released in September 2012.
