Vittorio Sella (1859 – 1943), a legend in mountaineering and photography, began photographing in the Alps from his home in Biella, Italy. Over his lifetime, he photographed many of the major mountain ranges all over the world. This exhibition, curated by Tony Decaneas, highlights a selection of photographs taken by Vittorio Sella and serves as a prelude to a major traveling exhibition. Sella was a consummate photographer who photographed the mountains he climbed as well as the flora, fauna, people and architecture that he encountered along the way. The opening reception for this even will be on September 16th from 5:30-7:30pm.
