Ilulissat Isfjord, Greenland 24 August 2007

It’s cold in Chicago this time of year and it may feel a bit colder at O’Hare International Airport when you take a few moments to view the new exhibit featuring a collection of 18 large-scale images of glaciers from the Extreme Ice Survey (EIS) project.

“Ice: Portraits of Vanishing Glaciers”, located past security in Terminal 2, features the work of photographer James Balog, whose Chasing Ice documentary includes a song that was just nominated for an Academy Award.
