Join us for a historic account with the man who has documented some of the world's most renowned climbers. We'll have a presentation, Q&A, and a book signing with the one and only Jim Herrington.

Herrington will present his photography book The Climbers (Mountaineers Books), the culmination of a two-decade project to track down and document the surviving legendary climbers of the early-to-mid 20th Century ‘Golden Age’ of climbing. These are the men and women from around the world who were vertically active between the 1920s and 1970s and who were at the cutting edge of an activity mostly unknown to the general public of the time. The Climbers is the recipient of both the Grand Prize and the Mountaineering History Award at the 2017 Banff Film & Book Festival.

Jim will recount what it was like to step into these climber’s homes, their lives, and their history. Seemingly time-traveling from the classic mountaineering literature he devoured as a young boy into the living rooms of these aging legends, this is his rogue’s gallery, a sampling of, and an ode to, an era.

More About Jim:

Over the past forty years Jim Herrington has photographed scores of luminaries, including Benny Goodman, The Rolling Stones, Morgan Freeman, and Dolly Parton, as well as the iconic mountaineers found in The Climbers. Jim’s work has appeared on album covers, in international ad campaigns, and in magazines such as Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, Esquire, and GQ. His photography has been exhibited in solo and group gallery shows in New York City, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., Nashville, Milwaukee, and Charlotte, and is in numerous private collections. He divides his time between New York City, Owens Valley, and Southern Europe. Learn more at jimherrington.com.
