Alta Magazine and Leica Store San Francisco present: Gordon Wiltsie
One Night Event! | Wed, April 17, 2019 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Join Alta at Leica Store San Francisco for a pop-up exhibit and reception featuring the work of acclaimed photographer Gordon Wiltsie. Meet Wiltsie, explore his stunning work from Alta's latest cover story on the Bears Ears National Monument in the Utah desert, and stay for a Q&A with Wiltsie, moderated by Alta publisher Will Hearst.
Gordon Wiltsie is a photographer, writer and mountain guide whose work has taken him to some of the world’s remotest locations, including previously unexplored wilderness regions of Antarctica, the Arctic, Central Asia and South America. For more than 45 years his pictures have been published around the world, including numerous feature articles for National Geographic, Outside and SKI.
Although Gordon is best known for his coverage of leading-edge mountaineering, dog sledding, skiing, and archaeological expeditions, another passion has always been capturing intimate images of the people and landscapes he encounters everywhere he goes. He cares deeply about vanishing panoramas and ways of life and has become conversant in several languages.
For the upcoming one night event at Leica Store San Francisco, Gordon will be displaying prints from his recent Alta Magazine cover story about the endangered Bears Ears National Monument and discussing the assignment with publisher Will Hearst, who years ago was Gordon’s first editor at Outside Magazine. He will also be giving a short presentation about some of his other assignments around the world.
