A Tribute to Discomfort: National Geographic Photographer Cory Richards.
At the age of 14, photographer Cory Richards had dropped out of high school and was technically homeless. His education, he says, was instead obtained through the observation of struggle. Through various forms of discomfort and adventure he would eventually become the first American to successfully summit an 8,000-meter peak in winter (Pakistan’s Gasherbrum II), and launch an incredible career in photography through the pages of National Geographic.
Digital media company Blue Chalk recently teamed up with National Geographic photographer and North Face athlete Cory Richards to create the deeply inspirational video you see above.<137206">
Dubbed “A Tribute to Discomfort,” the video takes you though Richards’ “stunning work, his unique sense of humor, and his quest to create photographs that relate a common humanity,” in a way that will have aspiring adventure photographers itching to buy the next plane ticket out of town.
