those pictures of Werner, especially of Astroman, are iconic; and as someone else said on another thread, but a damn piece in Werner.

"More iconic than iconic photos"

Iconic, iconicer, iconicest?

Iconincest, certainly.

Thanks to me? What do I have to do with it? I do have that scanned on my 'puter, but I thought I grabbed it off of here. No idea who took it.

This might have been the first photo of a naked Caucasian male to appear in the pages of National Geopornographic, but did not make the cut in the final edit...http://sustainableplay.com/running-talus-profile-of-doug-robinson-climbing-magazine/

does anyone know what photographers took some of these iconic photos, if they're still alive, and where I might track them down? Looking to do an exhibit and auction to raise funds for Carolina Climbers Coalition's 20th anniversary. Please reply to wolsrh@yahoo.com.
Thanks!

mouse from merced: that is an epic photo. to think natgeo probably picked some posed shot when they could have gone with a photo that actually documented real life of that era... and what a simian to catch a shot of in the wild... hahaha.

in general what a great thread... i'd never seen it before.



here is prob one of the more famous canadian shots:

Thanks!

Most of the photographers are credited in these posts or the book, which the photos were lifted, was listed. If they are not credited you could either PM the poster that posted the photo or do a reverse image search via google to track down the photographer. Or just ask here which photo you want to use and someone will probably answer your questions.
