Environmental photographer James Balog didn't believe in global warming in 2005. Then he undertook an assignment for National Geographic and spent several years documenting the unexpectedly rapid disappearance of centuries-old glaciers. Using time-lapse cameras and revolutionary new techniques, Balog captured eerily beautiful images of the changing frozen landscape which became the basis for director Jeff Orlowski's film Chasing Ice. Anne Wilkes Tucker, the Gus and Lyndall Wortham Curator of Photography for the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston introduces the screening.
