ARTIST ON EVEREST: Being Human at Base Camp – £20
By Derek Eland. Foreword by Kenton Cool.

Extraordinary personal accounts, stories and images from the world’s first artist in residence at Everest base camp. In 2016, British Artist Derek Eland embedded himself at Everest base camp for six weeks during the April-May summit season, in an effort to explore the motivations and experiences of would-be Everest climbers, Sherpas, trekkers and others in their own words. This book recounts the key stories from climbers, Sherpas, guides, Icefall Doctors, camp works, porters and trekkers, written in the shadow of Everest. By the end of the climbing season, hundreds of stories were written by people from dozens of different nationalities. The book also includes Derek’s personal account of his extraordinary adventure and includes 190 colour photographs which he took during his residency and over 60 handwritten postcards collected in the Diary room.

Published to coincide with the exhibition in our gallery. Order your copy of the book online here. International shipping is available.
