Wednesday 12 – 20:00 Mendi Base Camp Edificio Ensanche
Jim Herrington will present his photography book ‘The Climbers,’ the project to document the surviving legendary climbers of the ‘Golden Age’ of early-to-mid 20th Century. Jim’s talk and slide show will begin with a brief encapsulation of his 35-year photography career. He will move on to the alpinists, detailing the inspiring and captivating stories of the climbers and their era as well as describing his unusual efforts to locate and arrive on the doorstep of these aging legends. The travels and travails he undertook to complete this far-flung project are not without anecdotes of despair, humour and adventure.
