Riassunto: Come face to face with those who have spent their lives at altitude: explorers and pioneering travellers, intrepid ice climbers and extreme skiers, ecologists, photographers and film-makers. The weathered faces of black-and-white portraiture from the world's leading collections are displayed alongside modern photographs by a group of leading adventure photographers such as Glen Denny and Cory Richards, Gordon Wiltsie and Martin Hartley. Among those featured are Sir Edmund Hillary, George Mallory, Reinhold Messner, Tenszing Norgay, Galen Rowell, Edward Whymper, Steph Davis, Maurice Herzog, Leo Holding, Adam Watson and Kit Deslauriers.
