I just had a bunch of my images published in the newest Alpinist 29 magazine. Alpinist is an “archival-quality, quarterly publication dedicated to world alpinism and adventure climbing.” This mag is something of it’s own, and if you haven’t taken the time to check it out- you should! Last winter I photographed a few New England classics I had been really wanting to shoot, and luckily I happened to work with a few climbers/friends who were psyched to make it happen. A big thank you to them, as it can take quite a bit of time and trickery to set up for these shots, or sometimes we simply have to get up way too early. But I could not do it alone, and they help make these images happen. It is always cool to see your work in print- especially when the shoot involves freezing my ovaries off in negative New England temperatures while my legs go numb hanging in my harness from my static- love it! Check out Alpinist 29 to see a great spread about ol’ New England climbing, written by Majka Burhardt and additional photography by Jimmy Surette and Ed Webster as well!
