If you are a rock climber, Simon Carter's work will almost certainly impress you. Most of the photographs are shots of amazing climbs, beautiful locations and rock climbers performing at the highest level. Even if you are not into climbing this is a great book about nature, travel and a very unique lifestyle. Carter's Photography is not artistic nor sophisticated but yet is far from casual by being technically sound, approached with extreme effort and conveying powerful emotion. This is a work of love for the "cult of the rock"
I got this as a birthday present and it's a book I come back to on rainy winter days, to inspire myself. Gorgeous images taken by Simon Carter, a climber and professional photographer, tantalise the reader with possible trips. The photos showcase the climbing community and show that, worldwide, climbing is more than merely a sport, but a way of life.
Gave this as a present to my fiancée, he loves it! Showed it to our friends and looked at it ourselves countless times, pictures are really great, very inspiring as to new places where to go for a good climb. Would impress even someone who's not 'in the field'.
