This event has ended.

As a teenager climbing in the Colorado Rockies, Kofsky, a native of Wellesley, Mass, dreamed of these mountain sanctuaries; of somehow finding his way to them; to photograph "the emotion of standing in their presence."

"I taught myself photography from reading books -- Ansel Adams, 'The Negative' in particular. I also learned about the physics of optics and color from my dad, who is a retired physicist. I started taking photos to teach myself cinematography, to work in the movies, but I found that I enjoyed the meditative solitude in and of itself."

In preparation for realizing his dream, Kofsky trained in mountain climbing. When he actually arrived in Nepal and Pakistan, he sought local residents to help him find and reach difficult, often uncharted areas -- remote places hitherto unseen or photographed. His equipment was minimal, a tent, a camera on a padded belt, a zoom lens, a polarizing filter, a solar panel and batteries.
