Companion volume to The MatterhornA profusely illustrated major early book on the Dolomites, and pioneering climbs by Rey and others. Climbs on the Aiguilles of the Montanvert, on the towers of the Trentino, in the Pala Group. Some photos by Vittorio Sella. 
 
(b Turin, 26 Nov 1861; d Turin, 24 June 1935). Italian climber and photographer. He was born into a family of textile industrialists and was expected to follow the family business. He began taking photographs in the mid-1880s, using the gelatin silver process.
 
He soon adopted recently introduced portable cameras to document his numerous alpine climbing expeditions; while he frequently published and exhibited these photographs in sporting circles, he also developed great technical skills in order to create more structured images in the studio. The latter reflect his interests in the visual arts and in the new aesthetic of pictorial photography.
 
Rey's accurate portrayals of historical themes, his elegant treatment of light, a poetic handling of subject-matter and a preference for the platinum print also brought his work close in style to that advocated by the linked ring and remained typical of his imagery from 1893.
