Cory Richards

A climber and visual storyteller, Cory Richards was named National Geographic Adventurer of the year in 2012. Cory’s camera has taken him from the controlled and complex studio to the wild and remote corners of the world, from the unclimbed peaks of Antarctica to the Himalayas of Nepal and Pakistan-all in the attempt to capture not only the soul of adventure and exploration, but also the beauty inherent in our modern society.
