Chasing Ice brings you the stunning photography and time-lapse video of James Balog, world-famous nature photographer. As the official app of the award-winning documentary film, Chasing Ice takes you on an audiovisual journey through the stunning arctic findings of Balog's Extreme Ice Survey.
The Extreme Ice Survey has deployed revolutionary time-lapse cameras to capture a multi-year record of the world's changing glaciers. Its hauntingly beautiful videos compress years into seconds and capture ancient mountains of ice in motion as they disappear at a breathtaking rate. Traveling with a team of young adventurers across the brutal Arctic, Balog has risked his career and his wellbeing in pursuit of the biggest story facing humanity.
Use Chasing Ice to fly from glacier to glacier, to see through the lens of Balog's camera, and to touch our planet as it changes before our eyes.
