In his wonderful long-term glacier photos project, he installed time-lapse cameras at remote sites from Alaska to Iceland to the Alps.

He has made awesome natural glacier photos to let the people see how the climatic change transforms a “visual voice” to the planet’s changing ecosystems.

The Extreme Ice Survey is the most considerable artistic research ever executed to demonstrate the devastating melting of glacial ice.

All the cameras and videos were fixed in 15 sites in the Northern Hemisphere and developed to capture once an hour and every hour of daylight.

The set up 26 cameras catch around 4,000 photos every 12 months to catch glacier photos.

Here is a list where all the cameras were set up for glacier photos in different places:

Greenland, Iceland, Nepal, Alaska, Antarctica, Austria, Rocky Mountains, Iceland, Canada, the French and Swiss Alps, and Bolivia.

James Balog has also been an award-winning nature professional photographer for more than 25 years and his work has been displayed in more than 100 museums and art galleries around the globe.

Lets take a near look at his glacier photos.

Acclaimed environmental photographer James Balog was once a skeptic about climate change and a cynic about the nature of academic research.

But through his Extreme Ice Survey, he discovers undeniable evidence of our changing planet.

In Chasing Ice, Balog deploys revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world’s changing glaciers.

Join the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) team on an expedition to South Georgia Island near the Antarctic Peninsula.

This trip adds the Southern Hemisphere to a network of 43 time-lapse cameras placed worldwide on 24 glaciers.

Capturing one photo per hour of daylight, the cameras placed on South Georgia will document the story of the island’s melting glaciers.
