John Price: Canadian Rockies Ice
Posted on: March 6, 2015
When photographer John Price and I talked earlier today about the slideshow on the following pages, I had a hard time wrapping my head around where exactly he lives. "I'm in Banff... I'm from Australia. I lived here from 2012-2013... I went to Australia last year, then to Nepal [as a member of] a New Zealand/Australian expedition to an unclimbed mountain in the northeast corridor called Anidesha Chuli (6900m; read more here)... my plan was to move back to Canmore, which is where I'll move in a month.
"I'm just climbing and working on my dreams and desires to be an alpinist, and documenting what I can." Price has been climbing for the past six years and shooting photos for the past three. "I've been lucky to have photography mentors in the Rockies," he tells me.
