Resources: Chasing Ice.

Jeff Orlowski

Glaciers are receding at an alarming rate not previously seen due to atmospheric and oceanic warming. James Balog, an award-winning nature photographer and geomorphologist, sets out to combine his love of nature and photography and capture the visual evidence that glaciers are disappearing rapidly by photographing 22 different sites in Iceland, Alaska, and Greenland over a period of 5 years using video and time-lapse photography. Blalog is also confronted with health issues and risks while conducting the study with his team, and the film provides a deep, personal connection between he and his family in regards to his love of exploration and nature photography.
