Integrating art + science to reveal environmental change and inspire a balanced relationship with nature.
Earth Vision Institute (EVI), founded by photographer and scientist James Balog in 2012, is a donor-funded organization that is dedicated to creating, publishing, and sharing world-class visual stories and rich media content. EVI bridges the divide between art and science through unique conceptual insights, technological innovation, and scientific knowledge. We educate global citizens about the impact of environmental change on the world.
James Balog routinely speaks at climate conferences and related public forums to share breathtaking visual content and eyewitness accounts of the geographical and environmental shifts taking place on our planet.
In addition to the Art+Science photographic and video content that creates a visual narrative, EVI collaborates with experts around the world who contribute solid research to bolster our storytelling. Our content is distributed via a global network of educational, media, nonprofit, and other partnerships. We share our content and expertise with policymakers and governing organizations.
