In April of this year an avalanche on Mount Everest took the lives of 16 sherpas who were preparing a route for their climbing clients. In the wake of this tragedy, a group of photographers have banded together to create SherpaFund.org, which will sell a collection of photographs to help the Sherpa families in crisis and establish long-term support for the wider community.
All of the photos on the Fund’s website are available for purchase with 100% of the proceeds going to the Sherpa community via the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. The images of Everest and the people that live in the shadow of the mountain were curated by National Geographic’s Sadie Quarrier and Outside magazine’s Amy Silverman.
SherpaFund is organized by National Geographic photographer Aaron Huey with contributions from Jimmy Chin, James Balog, Cory Richards, Renan Ozturk, Teru Kuwayama, Pete McBride, Gordon Wiltsie, Andy Bardon, Robb Kendrick, and Max Lowe.
