Gregory was the official photographer on the 1953 British ascent of Everest. His spectacular photos of Everest record not only the human struggle which took place but also the once pristine beauty of the world’s highest mountain. Following that expedition, Gregory traveled the world, leading mountaining expeditions and recording cultures and landscapes that were then largely unknown to Westerners. His keen eye and sharp intelligence created pictures that portray all the majesty of the world’s greatest wildernesses and that capture those fleeting moments when ordinary people, objects and places become extraordinary. About half of the photos presented here are from Everest (1953) and the Khumbu region (1958, 1985, 1987), Rowaling (1955), Wrangall-St. Elias (1992), Cordillera Huayhuash (1963, 1984). The remainder are of Blackpool, Portsmouth, Paris, Netherland, Czechoslovakia, Scotland, Lake District, Portugal, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Poland, Italy, Greece, Spain, Afganistan, India, Mexico, and Africa. This book weighs 4.5 pounds.
