1,000 Words-plus

“Photographers have a uniquely powerful instrument in their hands called a camera. If they use that with another uniquely powerful instrument called their brain, we have an extraordinary opportunity to change the way humanity is seen. Too many photographers still arent embracing that opportunity. They’re still celebrating prettiness, and that’s not enough now. We already know that nature is pretty, especially when it’s left alone.”

—James Balog, photographer, in “Melt Down,” Outdoor Photographer, October 2012. Balog’s images were used to produce the film Chasing Ice (November 2012). (Thanks to alert photo-WORDster Mark Larson)
