Meet the Artist: Wednesday, October 13 from 11am to 12pm

For 40 years, James Balog has photographed the beauty of our natural resources as well as the devastating impact of climate change on the Earth and its inhabitants. His projects explore the environmental and biological consequences of human behavior, and has focused on interlocked events of melting glaciers, rising seas, warming oceans, polluted air, uninhabitable temperatures, and the destructive forces of increasingly ferocious hurricanes, floods, and wildfires. Widely published and exhibited as a photographer, Balog is also a provider of data and visual evidence on climate and environmental change, particularly data generated by the Extreme Ice Survey, which he created in 2007 to document and measure the retreat of glaciers around the world. This exhibition features more than 35 of Balog’s photographs from the 1980s to the present.
