Jimmy Chin Profiles Asymbol

Chomolungma – The North Face of Everest


One of the best thing about living in Jackson is the amazingly talented and interesting people that pass through this small town way up in Wyoming.

High on that list for me is my long time friend, collaborator and Asymbol artist Jimmy Chin. Jimmy is one of the world’s leading adventure photographers, and he spends his days on assignments in the most remote mountains in the world for National Geographic, The North Face and more. Some of Jimmy’s work is featured in my gallery, Aysmbol, and Jimmy was generous enough with his time to sit down with Asymbol Chief Curator, Alex Hillinger, to interview Alex for his own blog.

They discussed the latest happenings at the gallery, including a recent work of Jimmy’s, Chomolungma – the North Face of Everest. Jimmy’s photography in Nepal and around Everest is timely, due to the recent earthquake there. (Don’t forget to check out our collaboration with Shelter Box to donate to Nepal relief efforts.) 

The interview is great, so go check it at Jimmy’s blog.
