Climber and photographer Cory Richards is one of the most elite alpinists of our time. Being the only American to summit an 8,000 meter peak in winter, he has accomplished some of the most physical and mentally demanding feats in the history of terrestrial exploration. His ability to self-capture and expose the most authentic and raw aspects of the human condition have catapulted his career as a speaker for mental health, photography and exploration. His ease in communicating the complexities of the shared human experience has
created a sense of trust and relatability in the community.
