"..Balog's volume is as much a disturbing caveat as it is a gorgeous visual feast." ~American Photo

"Alongside the film, Jim has also realized an amazing book of still photography of glaciers....well worth your time" ~Huffington Post

"...merging ice and science to give a ‘visual voice’ to the planet’s changing ecosystems....Balog [has] a graduate degree in both geography and geomorphology and has been a photographer for over three decades. Suffice it to say, he knows what he’s talking about." ~the Wild Magazine

"Photographs...strike the eye with such power, and appeal with such subtlety, that viewers could scarcely imagine such epic materials and landscapes could disappear. General readers, artists, nature or geology fans, people who live or play in winter landscapes, and photographers, regardless of scientific or political bent, will all value this book" ~Book News

"Balog's breathtaking pictures show how erosian and melting temperatures taker their toll on the glaciers, shrinking and carving them. The result is dazzling to look at, but terrifying for the planet. The day could come when the only place we'll be able to see glaciers will be photographs like those in ICE." ~Science.time.com

"The pictures range from panoramic -- graceful stripes of eroded soil in ice; serpentine patterns created by meltwater above a thundering waterfall-- to close-ups of ice fragments so finely sculpted by nature they could be Swarovski vases. Who knew climate change could look so gorgeous?" ~Star Tribune

"James Balog's Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers is actually two books in one. The first showcases strikingly beautiful photographs of glaciers in Greenland, Iceland, Alaska, Canada, the Himalayas, the U.S. and Canadian Rockies, and other locations around the world. The second consists of time-lapse photos that record the changes the glaciers experienced over a six-year period." ~CNN.com

“It’s art as well as science: the project’s single-frame photographs capture the stunning beauty, architecture and enormity of ice formations. As a result, you can witness these amazing sights in Balog’s new book, ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers....book with a cause features 200 color photographs revealing the astonishing geological formations found in arctic and alpine landscapes at the far reaches of the world. Wise observations...beautifully formatted by top-tier art-book publisher, Rizzoli.” ~Urban Times Online Magazine

There's no fancy post-production at work here, no Photoshop or labored HDR imaging, but instead,..remote-controlled work of EIS drones, deployed across the globe to watch and capture a grave incremental change to our planet." ~Rangefinder Magazine

Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is incredible. James Balog and the extreme ice survey have been following the vanishing of glaciers over the years, a film is in the making. The photographs are superb, the layout and typography is well chosen, the text is precise. In a certain way, the book has a certain sadness to it when you see how fast the glaciers are melting away!!!

incredible and i'm only 53 pages in! 15. September 2012
Von Alan Dingus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
what i love about photography is that a good photographer can take things you look at every day and make them look interesting, sometimes amazing. so when you take good photographers and put them in the most beautiful places on earth (in my opinion, i love ICE and MOUNTAINS), then you get the most jaw-droppingly beautiful pictures you've ever seen.

sometimes it's hard to believe that the pictures are taken on planet earth. ice does amazing things when left to it's own devices. truly stunning.

absolutely worth a purchase. great quality binding and everything, beautiful pictures. the only thing i was expecting was more text, but at least they filled it with great pictures instead.

Stunning photography and important mission 11. September 2012
Von JO Reynolds - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is stunning--photography of glaciers from the Alps to the Rockies to Alaska--and all the while making it so clear that the world's ice is melting. Read the book and see the new documentary on James Balog and the work in this book: Chasing Ice.

Companion book to "Chasing Ice" documentary 17. Dezember 2012
Von Paul Allaer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
In 2007 James Balog started a multi-year initiative called "Extre Ice Survey" (or EIS), targeting glaciers in Iceland, Greenland and Alaska where he placed about two dozen cameras to document what is happening to glaciers around the world. Director Jeff Orlowski and his team tagged along and the results of this were captured in a documentary called "Chasing Ice". I happened to see it this past weekend at the Landmark E Street Theatre in Washington DC. This book is essentially a companion book to that documentary, providing stunning pictures of the glaciers that are disappearing before our very own eyes. Others have already commented on the book, and since I cannot find the DVD release posted on Amazon yet (although it is listed at Amazon UK), here my thoughts on that documentary.

"Chasing Ice" (2012 release; 76 min.) feels like a National Geogprahic special, and this is not a surprise (nor a complaint) in that James Balog started a pre-EIS project in partnership with National Geographic. Once it became clear to Balog that this could be something very special, the project was expanded into what would become the EIS. This movie was shot over a period of almost 4 years, and the patience with which this movie came about really pays off. If you think this is some one-man show, you will be surprised to see how many people became involved with this, and what the techological challenges were and how they would need to overcome (the most obvious one being: how to shelter the cameras from the relentless weather elements). Once the cameras are positioned, they were to make photographs every 30 min. during the daylight hours. When you collect the thousands of pictures into a time-lapse film, the results are nothing short of astonishing. In addition to the time-laps photography, there is various video footage as well. Sometimes you need to be a little lucky, as when a team goes out in the hope of catching the "calving" of a glacier (when a huge piece breaks off), and then actually catches it on camera (the concluding part of the movie is primarily the jaw-dropping footage of a "calving" the size of lower Manhattan from a glacier in Greenland).

In all, I can't say enough about this movie. I was initially a bit skeptical of going to see this due to the rather short length, but all I can say is that I am very glad I went anyway, as this movie will without a doubt blow your mind, as it did mine. If you have a chance to see this, either in the theatre or on DVD, do not miss it. "Chasing Ice" is HIGHLY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Beautiful book 23. Mai 2014
Von Stella Romeo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I look at this book the way I looked at my favorite story books when young. If you've seen the movie "Chasing Ice," you realize James Balog has a true passion for glaciers. And he's a superb photographer. I'll never in my lifetime travel to any of the places he shows in this book, but feel his photographs transport me there. They're beautiful, inspired and hopefully will remind anyone who looks at them that the earth is a jewel and needs to be protected.

Can We Change Our Way of Life to Preserve Our Quality of Life? 30. Oktober 2013
Von Christine potter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Powerful and amazing photographs of our Earth's glaciers! Monumental evidence of unlimited beauty that we take for granted and may discover that these earthly legacies will be short lived due to negligence of humans.
