Taking nearly two decades, and travelling to ten countries, the photographer Herrington created a portrait series of earlyto- mid 20th Century mountain climbing legends. The result is ‘The Climbers,’ a collection of sixty black-and-white photographs that document these rugged individualists, including the likes of Royal Robbins, Reinhold Messner, Yvon Chouinard, Riccardo Cassin, Sonia Livanos and Gwen Moffat, among others. Between the 1920s and 1970s these determined men and women used primitive gear along with their considerable wits, talent, and fortitude to tackle unscaled peaks around the world. In these images, Herrington has captured their humanity, obsession, intellect, and frailty.
