Eventually, Balog did move on, to landscapes of the most dramatic kind: He embarked on the Extreme Ice Survey, a painstaking and eerily beautiful documentation of the effect of global warming on Arctic glaciers that became the subject of a controversially chilling environmental film, Chasing Ice, as well as a coffee-table tome published by Rizzoli.
Now the visual fruits of Balog’s EIS labor, in still images and time-lapse video, will go on display in ICE: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers, which opens today at the Colorado Photographic Arts Center, 1513 Boulder Street. From 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, November 9, Balog will be there for a public reception and book signing; the show runs through December 14.

Wednesdays-Saturdays; Sat., Nov. 9, 5:30-7 p.m. Starts: Nov. 7. Continues through Dec. 14, 2013
