Jim Herrington's photographs have appeared in Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and GQ, as well as on scores of album coversFor nearly twenty years, and while traveling to ten countries, Herrington created a portrait series of early-to-mid 20th Century mountain climbing legends. The result is The Climbers, a collection of sixty black-and-white photographs that document these rugged individualists, including the likes of Royal Robbins, Reinhold Messner, Yvon Chouinard and Riccardo Cassin. Between the 1920s and 1970s these 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.
The Climbers received the Grand Prize at the 2017 Banff Film & Book Festival.
