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 GrGregory-rwenzori copyegory: From Everest to Blackpoolis 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.

    I like how Alfred Gregory depicted the mountain as more than just a wonder of nature. He showed a human side to Everest: that somewhere within its slopes, Everest has a human face.
