Featuring Nat Geo adventurer Cory Richards
Feb 8, 2019Featured artists
National Geographic photographer Cory Richards doesn’t just capture the beauty of the wilderness—he experiences it himself. Richards is a journeyman, adventurer, and expedition photographer. (He’s also the first American to summit any of the world’s 8,000-meter peaks in winter.) His photographs frequently feature man in isolation, shrunken against the colossal magnitude of nature. We chose five of our favorite photographs, as well as quotes to match.
