MTN Gallery: Summer 2014


Aperture Special: The Crown of the Continent. An excerpt of the photographic work of Mountain contributor Steven Gnam.

Steven Gnam was born and raised on the U.S. side of the Crown of the Continent, an 18 million acre mountainous expanse hugging the Continental Divide in Alberta, British Columbia, and Montana. Fittingly, in May, Gnam released Crown of the Continent (Mountaineers Books), an oversized, glossy, 192-page photo book complete with essays from the likes of critically acclaimed author and wildlife biologist Douglas Chadwick.

Crown of the Continent stands alone as a work of art, but Gnam’s goal for this project was also to take viewers deep into the region—via foot, skis, bike, and even snorkeling gear.  We’re honored to present a small sampling here.  —The Editors
