Bradford Washburn's mountaineering and photographic accomplishments are unparalleled in the annals of climbing. A superb collections of his photos. 

* This retrospective corresponded with a traveling exhibit of Washburn's photography, debuting at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

* Stunning black and white images from one of America's greatest photographic talents.

* Includes an intimate interview with Bradford Washburn.

Traveling the world for eight decades, mountaineer, explorer, cartographer, and aerial photographer Bradford Washburn has documented the landscape from the Grand Canyon to the Alps, from Mount McKinley to Mount Everest. Genius has inspired him to pioneer photographic techniques that capture the most remote and inaccessible points on earth under conditions worthy of a stunt man. Genius has also transformed his photos-conceived for a purely functional purpose-into works of expressive art.

Now the career of America's most celebrated mountain photographer is presented for the first time in book form. In Bradford Washburn: Mountain Photography, one hundred large-format mountain photographs, selected from more than 10,000 images, take the reader through Washburn's lifetime of accomplishments. Aerial images of high mountains, looking more like bold relief maps, are captured in extreme raking light.

There are picture essays of early Alaskan expeditions-striking modern still lifes of supply caches and camp conditions-plus portraits of team members and colorful characters and situations encountered along the way. Additional aerial photographs reveal, in breathtaking clarity, the workings of the earth, continuously transformed by upheavals and erosions, and the slow march and retreat of glaciers.

An in-depth Washburn interview by Antony Decaneas brings a voice to the life portrayed in images. Also included is an extensive, unique chronology of the major events in Washburn's life and career, illustrated with 40 additional images.
