Jury comments:
“This looks like a massive coffee-table book at first glance, and it is indeed visually gorgeous. Yet the contents are so much more than eye candy. The photographs of William Frej are stunning. The words he contributes with Anne Frej complement the images achingly well. Add the scholarly essay by Edwin Bernbaum and the book’s foreword, and the result is a combination of wonder. The “roof of the world” signifies the collective region termed the Himalayas. Daily life tends to be isolated and hard on the mountains and in their valleys. The work chronicles more than 20 treks by the authors in the regions of what today is termed Nepal, Tibet, Bhutan, plus parts of Pakistan, India, Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan.”
