New coffee table book out: Montagnes Extrêmes


I am very (very) happy to announce the publication of my third book, Montagnes Extrêmes by publisher Palantines, here in France. Unlike my previous books Remote Exposure and Extreme Perspectives, this one is not technical but simply a collection of my best photos from the last few years, both action and landscape. The text is in French but there is very little of it, just a foreword and short captions.

The first copies landed on my doorstep a couple of weeks ago, but since I was busy climbing various pieces of American rock, it was only yesterday that I saw it for the first time. I expected good things, but must say I was blown away by the quality of the printing and the layout. There is something very special about seeing images in print rather than on a computer screen.

Here are a few sample images, and you can see a couple more on the dedicated page on the website.



Both Amazon FR and Amazon UK have it and can ship internationally, but they seem out of stock at the moment and show several weeks shipping time. Some other French retailers seem to have it in, though, for instance FNAC and Gibert. I don’t sell them directly, but let me know if you are having trouble finding a copy and I’ll do some digging for you. If you manage to catch me in person, I’ll also be very happy to sign copies.

Just saying, but it’s soon Christmas time… ;-)
