Summary

Scale the earth's most inspiring mountains through photographs culled from the Magnum archives by some of the world's most celebrated photographers.

Magnum Photos is arguably the most celebrated photographic cooperative ever created and these images represent the world's most iconic photographers capturing the world's most breathtaking peaks. Robert Capa portrays the glamour of skiing the Austrian Alps circa 1950; Chris Steele-Perkins offers a hallucinogenic view of Mt. Fuji; Steve McCurry shows us life and war in the shadow of Afghanistan's Hindu Kush; Harry Gruyaert captures childhood in the Moroccan High Atlas; and Martin Parr contemplates Machu Picchu's mysterious granite peaks. Unique views, dramatic lighting, and superb composition make this volume a master class in photography. From breathtaking heights and majestic ridge lines to panoramic landscapes and dramatic terrains--these pictures illustrate everything there is to love, fear, and respect about the world's mountains.
