"To mark the anniversary of the first ascent of Mount Everest on May 29, 1953, the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) in conjunction with the British Council in Nepal has created an exhibition called Imaging Everest from its collection of approximately 20,000 photographs taken on the nine Mount Everest Expeditions between 1921 and 1953. These expeditions were jointly organized by the Royal Geographical Society and the Alpine Club. The exhibition shows the importance of the landscape and people of the Himalayan region and tells the story of those involved in the first attempts to climb Everest ...This website provides an online version of the Imaging Everest exhibition and enables people all over the world to share this remarkable collection of photographs.
