Vittorio Sella is still considered to be one of the best mountain photographers. His photos have both an historical and artistic value, and are popular with mountaineers. Many of the mountains he climbed had never been photographed before and are used as a reference to detect the melting of glacier ice, as well as being an intriguing black and white document of mountains and mountain people. The volume, realised in close collaboration with the Sella Foundation, gathers the photos taken by legendary Vittorio Sella at the turn of the last century while on expeditions to the world's highest mountaintops. In the words of Ansel Adams, "Sella's strikingly elegant photographs revealed [the mountains] in all their sheer majesty." Even today climbers still use Sella's photographs to map out routes and to gain a fuller appreciation of the challenges that lie ahead. In addition to documenting important scientific expeditions, the photos have a considerable artistic value, recognised internationally; they are exhibited in the world's leading museums.

L'autore:

Vittorio Sella (28 August 1859-12 August 1943) was an Italian photographer and mountaineer, who took photographs of mountains which are regarded as some of the finest ever made.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

Uniek kingsize boek brengt het werk van Vittorio Sella, pionier in de fotografie en bergbeklimmer, tot leven Vanaf de laatste decennia van de negentiende eeuw realiseerde Vittorio Sella (1859-1943) baanbrekend werk met zijn bergfotografie dat tot op de dag van vandaag ongeëvenaard is. Het werk dat hij produceerde, betekende een keerpunt in de geschiedenis van de fotografie in termen van esthetische kwaliteit, techniek en omvang. Vanaf zijn twintigste klom en fotografeerde Sella in de Alpen, en maakte hij expedities naar Alaska, de Kaukasus en Afrika. Op zijn vijftigste beklom hij nog de K2, de op één na hoogste berg ter wereld. Gedurende alle expedities waar Sella deel van uitmaakte werd meteorologisch, geologisch en botanisch onderzoek gedaan. In de Alpen is de beroemde Sella-route naar hem vernoemd. In dit kingsize boek zijn voor het eerste de beste foto's gepubliceerd uit het archief van de Fondazione Sella in Biella. Het zijn bijzondere reproducties die, afhankelijk van de omstandigheden, werden gemaakt van originele negatieven of positieven. De foto's van Vittorio Sella - genomen op de hellingen en de toppen van de mooiste bergen van onze planeet - zijn onderscheidend door de nauwkeurigheid waarmee ze genomen werden. Het boek bevat twee uitklapbare panoramafoto's.
