The photographs below were all taken on a six-day walking trip around the Mont Blanc Massif in August, 1979. We left from Le Tour-Argentieres (F), crossed into Switserland, then over to Italy through the Swiss and Italian Val Ferret, to reach Cormayeur (I); from there we went up the Val Veni, and returned to France, staying in the Col de la Croix du Bonhomme refuge. From there we walked down the valley of Les Contamines-Montjoie, where our trip ended.
Photographs were made with a Leica M3 and Summicron 50 mm, Summicron 90 mm and Super-Angulon 21 mm lenses, on Ilford PanF film. This collection of photographs has led to an exhibition at the Leica Galerie at the Ernst Leitz Company, in Wetzlar, Germany, in October 1981.
