Distinguished Lecture Series

An award-winning nature and science photographer...

James Balog spoke on the Northwest Missouri State campus last night as part of the University's Distinguished Lecture Series. Balog's work has been featured in National Geographic, The New Yorker, Life, Vanity Fair and the New York Times Magazine as well as a number of documentaries. One of the most notable was Balog's Extreme Ice Survey featured in the documentary Chasing Ice and is considered to be one of the most in depth photographic studies of glaciers ever conducted. Balog says he uses his experience in geology and communications to tell the story of climate change through his photography.
