‘For the first time in Black and White, one of mountaineering’s greats – and outstanding mountain photographers – presents his unique image of the extreme beauty found amongst the world’s highest peaks. Doug Scott succeeds in capturing the geometry, texture and light of the heights in a truly inspiring way’.
As WYG continues to work with Community Action Nepal to help rebuild essential infrastructure in local communities, we are delighted to sponsor an art exhibition starting in London next month in support of the charity’s efforts.
Entitled ”Doug Scott – High Exposure”, the exhibition opens up to the general public from 1st December, 2017 to 5th January, 2018, (closed from 22nd December until 2nd January) at the D Contemporary Gallery in London. It features impressive photography relating the 8,000-metre ascent to the top of Mount Everest of CAN founder and mountaineering legend, Doug Scott.
Doug Scott and mountaineering author, Robin Ashcroft, will attend a private vernissage of the exhibition on Thursday, 30th November. They will both give talks, highlighting Doug’s challenging journey in reaching Everest’s summit, and providing more insight into his work helping communities in remote Nepalese regions affected by 2015 earthquakes.
A CAN products’ sale will also be held during the opening event, featuring pashminas, Doug’s new book, and more. All proceeds will go toward CAN and its 40 community welfare projects, from schools to rural health posts, many of which were affected or destroyed during the earthquakes.
Since the earthquakes, we have been proud to lend our expertise to CAN’s Build Back Better campaign, carrying out planning and damage assessments, deploying resources within challenging environments, and supporting building designs.
