The flame line shows the Lewis Glacier's location in 1934.
It has since receded about 200m.

On Feb 10th 1960,
Siegmund Straubinger
(possibly a German climber) was killed on the mountain and buried by his colleagues. At that time Kenyan porters weren't used, so they would not have been able to remove the corpse, instead preferring to bury in situ. The tiny footprints in the picture are my wanderings. 


The work was acquired by the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC and part of their show of recent purchases 'Celebrating Photography' in 2015/16.
