Concurrent with mountaineering's development began as a popular leisure-time pursuit in the Alps and before climbing became the high-tech, intense sport it is today -- photography began its evolution into a favorite activity as well. This parallel growth created the distinct genre of mountaineering photography. As much a history of mountaineering as a history of photography, Souvenirs from High Places offers a fascinating collection of images from both ground-breaking photographers and amateur enthusiasts that demonstrate not only how much has changed, but how much has remained the same.
