The Climbers

The Climbers

“Jim Herrington’s wonderful new folio volume of portraits, titled simply The Climbers, aims at a lofty plateau. Herrington seeks to crystallize his own Golden Age…he tries not only to document the visages of his heroes in their older years, but also to plumb those faces for keys to the character beneath. It is as if Richard Avedon had photographed mountaineers rather than movie stars, minus the props and gimmicks.” - David Roberts, Sierra Magazine
