A Visual Voice For the Future
Balog's singular vision across the disciplines of art and science not only break the paradigm of what it means to be an artist in today's world, but also reveals compelling images of unimaginable allure.
"Humanity couldn't possibly have the physical ability to change the very essence of our planet - or could it?"
For over 35 years, Balog has broken new conceptual and artistic ground in pursuit of this answer.
His exploration of elemental substances - wildfire and wildlife, ice and water, air and climate celebrates the amazing beauty of our shared world. Balog's work reveals that human beings are not separate from nature, but are, and always have been, an integral part.

These sublime images - resulting from Balog's individual expression - resonate with universal understanding. They are a visual voice for the future.

"As an observer of nature, an earth scientist, a mountaineer, a photographer, and a citizen of this planet—all these currents of my adult life have lead me to a singular conclusion—this is the only thing I should be doing at this time and this place."
