I wanted the biggest shot I could get of the baddest mountain of them all - K2. Huffing along on the way to Broad Peak Base Camp I had taken the shot over and over again - so I decided to experiment with shooting the south face in sections and merging the pieces in Photoshop.

The result is what you see - 23 images merged together - an attempt to look closely at the terrain comprising, in my opinion, the most significant mountain face of them all - in its history, its scale, and its aesthetic. From this vantage point, many routes up the mountain are visible: the Abruzzi Ridge, the South Face Route, the West Ridge, the Magic Line.

This photo is dedicated to Tadeusz Piotrowski and Wojciech Wroz - Polish pioneers on two of these unbelievable routes of inspiration who were lost on the way back to earth.

VAST PRINTS

THE HIGHEST RESOLUTION PHOTOGRAPHIC PRINTS EVER CREATED

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed currency and military surveillance imagery.  Learn more  

Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
