In thespring of 2005, acclaimed environmental photographer James Balogheaded to theArctic on a tricky assignment for National Geographic: tocapture images to helptell the story of the Earth’s changing climate.Even with a scientificupbringing, Balog had been a skeptic about climatechange. But that first tripnorth opened his eyes to the biggest storyin human history and sparked achallenge within him that would put hiscareer and his very well-being atrisk.
Chasing Ice is thestory of oneman’s mission to change the tide of history by gatheringundeniable evidence ofour changing planet. Within months of that firsttrip to Iceland, thephotographer conceived the boldest expedition of hislife: The Extreme IceSurvey. With a band of young adventurers in tow,Balog began deployingrevolutionary time-lapse cameras across the brutalArctic to capture amulti-year record of the world’s changingglaciers.
As the debatepolarizes America and the intensity of naturaldisasters ramps upglobally, Balog finds himself at the end of his tether.Battling untestedtechnology in subzero conditions, he comes face to face withhis ownmortality. It takes years for Balog to see the fruits of his labor.Hishauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and captureancientmountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtakingrate. Chasing Icedepicts a photographer trying to deliver evidence andhope to our carbon-poweredplanet.
