Join us in the Ski and Bike Shop for an evening with Bend local and world class mountaineer, Graham Zimmerman. Here is a preview in his own words – “We all find inspiration in different places. For me, it is the mountains. The wild hills of the world create a deep desire inside of me to be a stronger smarter human, a more thoughtful man, a better partner (both in climbing and to my lady Shannon) and a positive contributor to society.
This last summer I was in the Pakistani Karakoram attempting an unclimbed 7000m peak. For most, this would bring to mind images of standing on high icy rock buttresses looking out over infinite expanses of mountains. Quite to the contrary, this summer it meant sitting in base camp waiting out weeks of hot bad weather.
This, in turn, provided something I often don’t have it my life these days, time. Time to evaluate my life, time to consider how I was influencing the world around me and time to ponder my inspirations.
I utilized part of this time to get out my cameras and start a project attempting to capture elements of the mountains that drive me and inspire me. Not necessarily what I want to climb, but the beauty that draws me in and keeps me coming back.
I got in close with a long lens attempting to capture not only the huge expanse of the Karakoram, but it’s intimate folds and textures.
Here is that project.
I really hope you enjoy. ”
