This small handful of images is much more than a simple photography book, since they reflect a style and a “philosophy of life”, that of those who risk everything, to make their dreams come true, to discover the beautiful landscapes that our mother nature from the top of the most spectacular peaks on the planet and also do it with a camera to be able to share those “gifts” with others, their lived experiences. A LIFE AMONG MOUNTAINS
In the book you will find images taken over more than 25 years of expeditions and photographic trips. Many of them have obtained recognition in the most prestigious photography contests.
From the highest peaks on the planet such as Everest, in the Himalayas, a mountain that I ascended in 2018, to such mythical peaks as Mount K2 and Broad Peak in the Karakorum, passing through mountain ranges such as the Pamir, the Thian Shan, Alaska, Andes, Africa, Alps, Dolomites, or the Pyrenees, the mountains that saw me grow up.
The best lights, the most beautiful locations, the experiences lived along the way.
Prologues by mountaineer Ferrán Latorre, photographer José Benito Ruiz, and Martín Garcia OMD, Technical Expert
