The Elk Mountain Range

Face of The Maroon Bells - Elk Mountain Range Series - photographed in 1981-1982 printed in 2008-2009

Announcing the new 24 print 20″ x 16″ edition of silver gelatin prints of my aerial photographs of the Elk Mountain Range.

In 1982 I photographed the mountains surrounding Aspen Colorado from a light plane. The photographs were made for Mountain Rescue-Aspen. MRA is “A volunteer organization dedicated to saving lives through backcountry rescue and mountain safety education.” I was a volunteer and member of the board of directors of MRA at that time. Working with fellow volunteer Don Hose who flew the 1948 Piper Super Cub I rode in the back seat photographing out the open window. The photographs were compiled in three ring binders for planning rescues. At the time we published a portfolio of 15 14″ x 11″ silver gelatin prints in an edition of 50 to raise money for MRA. That portfolio sold out immediately.

The new 20″ x 16″ edition adds 9 previously unprinted images and is limited to three prints of each of the 24 images. One set of 15 of the new prints has sold. Two complete sets are still available as well as one set of the 9 new images. The prints are on Oriental Seagull fiber base paper archivally processed. The nine remaining prints from the first set are priced at $1100 each. The second set of prints are available for $1250 each (or $24,000 for the full set of 24 prints) and the third set are available for $1500 each or $30,000 for the full set of 24 prints.) I will donate 10% of the proceeds from sets 2 and 3 to Mountain Rescue Aspen. Contact me directly for purchase.
