The Alaska Project aims to document and photograph every mountain of the Alaska Range.
Carl Battreall is a photographer who focuses on alpine photography and works toward conservation of remote, unprotected wilderness areas.
Stretching in an arch across south central Alaska, the awe inspiring Alaska Range is one of the great mountain ranges of North America. “There has never been a book about the entire Alaska Range and this magnificent mountain chain deserves to be celebrated with a large format photography book of the highest caliber,” said Battreall.
“Outside of certain sections of Denali National Park, very little of the Alaska Range has been seriously photographed and documented. Much of the range is shrouded in mystery, mainly because of its remoteness.”
The majority of the images will be taken from the tundra and glaciers, in the heart of the mountains. Battreall will photograph during all four seasons. He works simply and travels light.
For keen alpinists, the unclimbed mountains in Battreall’s photos are what dreams are made of. Visit his website and scroll through dozens of photos, most of which are of unclimbed faces or mountains.
