Abstract:

"Weighed down by heavy, nineteenth-century camera equipment, Vittorio Sella climbed some of the world's most mysterious, perilous peaks and photographed them, many for the first time. Climbers today still use Sella's pictures to map out routes and to better comprehend the challenges in store." "Through Sella's images, we witness the grandeur of the Alps, the Caucasus, the Saint Elias Range in Alaska, the Ruwenzori in Africa, and the Himalayas. Sella's portfolio of K2 in the western Himalayas is the definitive photographic study of this mountain, considered to be the world's most difficult and dangerous to climb. His dazzling photographic documentation of these mountains had no predecessors and has few, if any, successors."--Jacket.
