More About the Author
Recognized as one of the world's leading adventure photographers, Chris Noble's work celebrates the beauty of nature and inspires people to live healthier, more mindful, and more sustainable lives. According to American Photo magazine, "the secret of Noble's success is that there's no dividing line between adventure and his photography." A veteran of expeditions ranging from Denali to Everest to the jungles of Borneo, Noble's writing and photography have appeared in hundreds of publications including Life, National Geographic, Newsweek, Orion, Outside, Rolling Stone, and Sports Illustrated, as well as books and anthologies. His humanitarian work includes portraits of Rwandan genocide survivors for Lily Yeh's Barefoot Artist Organization and environmental imagery in Africa, Canada, and Southern Utah for Round River Conservation. Noble's latest book is "Women Who Dare" celebrating the athleticism, wisdom, and grace of twenty of North America's most inspiring women climbers. As world champion Sasha DiGiulian, states, "this book offers an inspiring look at the world of female climbing, capturing the heart of the sport from a perspective not fully explored before-- that of women themselves. Working with Chris Noble on this project was an absolute pleasure. He helped me reflect on and articulate why climbing has become my life's passion."
