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 legendary climbers. The result is The Climbers, a collection of sixty black-and-white photographs that document these rugged individualists, including the likes of Royal Robbins, Chris Bonington, Reinhold Messner, and Riccardo Cassin. Between the 1920s 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. Includes an essay by Greg Child, a preface by Jim Herrington and a foreword by Alex Honnold.
