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 mountains. In the words of Ansel Adams, 'Sella's strikingly elegant photographs revealed [the mountains] in all their sheer majesty.' Even today, climbers 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 considerable artistic value. Recognised internationally, they are exhibited in the world's leading museums.
