Excerpt from “There and Back: Photographs from the Edge

I believe photography can expand our perception of the natural world, and of what humans can achieve in it.  Over time, I hoped that sharing the beauty of our planet and our place within it would foster a sense of responsibility to protect and preserve these places, both for future generations to enjoy and for their intrinsic value.

Along the way, I found a second family in the adventurers who seek out the world’s wildest places and devote their lives to accomplishing what others have never dared.  The members of this tribe became my most cherished friends, partners, and mentors.  I’ve been astonished, again and again, at what these individuals are capable of doing with vision and clarity of purpose, from Kit DesLauriers skiing from the summit of Everest to Alex Honnold free soloing El Capitan and beyond.

Being a witness to grand successes and epic failures, I discovered my own purpose to share the stories of the people I found so inspiring.  Every person I have photographed has helped shape me into who I am today.  For that, I will be forever grateful.
