Expedition Photographer in Antarctica.

Last night I watched an adventure documentary called 180° South on Netflix. It’s the story of climber and surfer Jeff Johnson as he retraces the 1968 journey of his heroes Yvon Chouinard and Doug Tompkins (founder of The North Face) to Patagonia to climb the elusive Corcovado. This photograph was shown early on in the doc and stuck with me, so I looked it up.
