Adventure photographer tells tales

Veteran explorer and photographer Gordon Wiltsie has spent his career combining photographic talent with a natural aptitude for mountaineering, skiing and other adventure skills. As such, he has evolved into a leader who could organize and photograph more than 100 foreign treks and expeditions to some of the wildest places on earth.

A Wilton Library audience will hear from this adventurer first hand when he visits on Wednesday, Jan. 20, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in the program, Expedition Photographer and Explorer Gordon Wiltsie. He will be interviewed by international documentary photographer and Wilton resident Daryl Hawk.

Wiltsie is widely recognized as one of his generation’s preeminent expedition photographers, having been featured in hundreds of well-known magazines from skiing to travel and leisure and more. In 2006 W.W. Norton published his own critically acclaimed To the Ends of the Earth — The Adventures of an Expedition Photographer. Admission is free and registration is recommended.
