I’m a big fan of the photographer James Balog, I found his book through the American Forest Organization.
The book “Tree” a new vision of the American Forest is a very beautiful and interesting book. I relate to his mission, which is to change the way we relate to nature though the use of his photography. The thing that set him apart from other landscape photographers is his daring and creative approach to photographing trees.
James has a great website, James Blog Photography. I was happy to find a video by him online today, I am posting a link, I am not sure if everybody has a fast connection, but if you do it worth checking out, it shows how he made the book. The video is called Extreme Photographer James Balog.
James Balog is an award-winning photographer who has focused much of his work on environmental issues, particularly climate change. He is perhaps best known for his “Extreme Ice Survey” project, in which he and his team used time-lapse photography to document the retreat of glaciers around the world. His work has been featured in numerous publications, including National Geographic, and he has authored several books, including “Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers” and “Tree: A New Vision of the American Forest”.
The American Forests organization is a non-profit conservation group that is dedicated to protecting and restoring forests in the United States. They have worked on a wide range of initiatives, including planting trees in urban areas, restoring areas that have been damaged by wildfires, and working to protect forests from invasive species and other threats.
It’s great to see that you are interested in James Balog’s work and have found his book through the American Forests organization. Both Balog and American Forests are doing important work to raise awareness about environmental issues and promote conservation efforts.
