Jim Herrington | The Climbers

Join photographer and author Jim Herrington, for a reading and signing of his new nonfiction book, The Climbers

Jim Herrington's photographs have appeared in Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and GQ, as well as on scores of album covers, but for nearly two decades, he has been working on a portrait series of influential climbers. The result is a collection of sixty black-and-white photographs that document these rugged individualists, including the likes of Royal Robbins, Reinhold Messner, and Yvon Chouinard. Between the 1930s and 1970s, determined men and women used primitive gear along with their considerable wits, talent, and fortitude to tackle unscaled peaks around the world. In these images, Herrington has captured their humanity, obsession, intellect, and frailty.
