This special edition comes with an 11x14 silver gelatin print and certificate of authenticity. Bradford Washburn: Mountain Photography includes one hundred large-format mountain photographs. Aerial images of high mountains, looking more like bold relief maps, are captured in extreme raking light. There are picture essays of early Alaskan expeditions-striking modern still lifes of supply caches and camp conditions-plus portraits of team members and colorful characters and situations encountered along the way. Additional aerial photos reveal, in breathtaking clarity, the workings of the earth, continuously transformed by upheavals and erosions, and the slow march and retreat of glaciers. An in-depth Washburn interview by Antony Decaneas brings a voice to the life portrayed in images. Also included is an extensive, unique chronology of the major events in Washburn's life and career, illustrated with 40 additional images.
