Alpine Exposures: A Photo Gallery
When I wanted to make a book about my last decade of climbing I knew it wouldn't be easy, but I wanted to keep true to the values of alpinism and to the people that I've climbed with. To that end all the images contained are real—these aren't posed shots but honest moments captured that show a fleeting glimpse of a greater climb. The extended captions are there to help set the scene because sometimes it's easy to forget that behind a split-second snapshot in time there may have been days of hard climbing just for that single moment through the lens, and for me that's important.[Photo] Jon Griffith
