One, One Thousand
A story of a photographers grueling ascent up a mountain in 1891 to capture an impossible photo.
Some of the most iconic photos to this day are those of awe-inspiring mountains that tower over us piercing through the clouds above. Not many people get to experience what it feels like, never-mind what it looks like, standing on the summit of one of the highest peaks in the world. The blinding white surrounding you, the mountain peaks surfacing above the clouds... A truly breath-taking experience. Our story follows the journal entries of a 1890's photographer summiting one of the most daunting and challenging climbs of his time to capture an impossible photo. Climbing a mountain is no easy task, but imagine climbing a mountain in the 1890's in the middle of winter lugging a massive camera on your back for three weeks to capture one photo. This is the story of William Fran Sanc.
