From Everest to Blackpool: Alfred Gregory’s Work on Display & Auction
Alfred Gregory is not exactly a household name, but his work in 1953 was seen by millions around the world. In that year, he was the photographer for the historic expedition which, on May 29, 1953, saw Edmund Hillary and Tenzin Norgay reach the summit of Everest.
Gregory sadly passed away in February, 2010, leaving behind amazing photographic work stored in a large, fireproof box. That work – Alfred Gregory: From Everest to Blackpool – is now on display at Webbs Auction House and Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand, with much of it up for sale at auction as well.
Along with Everest, Gregory also photographed the Rwenzori Mountains and other areas around the world.
