3.0 out of 5 stars An average collection of stock photography, nothing more, 22 Dec. 2011
This review is from: Mountain: Portraits of High Places (Hardcover)
Just so you know where I am, these are a few of the other mountain photography titles I have:

Scotland The Wild Places - Colin Prior
Summit - Vittorio Sella
Karakoram - Shiro Shirahata
Mountain Light - Galen Rowell
Bradford Washburn - Mountain Photography

Ok, so there are 'a lot' of photographs in this book. However, very few of them are what I would call 'inspiring' mountain images, or, grand landscapes. There's lots of what appears like (in terms of quality) 80's style 35mm stock/mountain shots, taken by mountaineers, mid pitch, for example. Or snap's at base camp. Most are dating from turn of the century onwards, with what feels like a focus on the early mid 80's.

The dust jacket is of low quality, as is the page stock & printing of the book. It's definitely not the 'quality coffee table book' I had hoped it to be, more sort of a large book club style book.

As a photographer reviewing this book, its just OK, as opposed to great, and as such I would price it in the £20 range as opposed to the £30+ pounds being asked.

Overall, average, there are better books out there.
