The Khumbu Climbing Center is a non profit subsidiary of the Alex Lowe Charitable Foundation. Founded by Conrad Anker and Jenni Lowe Anker, KCC's mission is to increase the safety margin of high altitude workers in the Himalaya. Its vocational training focuses on mountaineering, ice climbing, rescues, medical aid, environmental mountain science, and english language.

In Phortse, Nepal I conducted oral history interviews and portraits of KCC’s Nepalese / Sherpa instructors. I also photographed the training season for donor partners, restarted / managed the KCC social media channels, and managed a web developer to revamp the ALCF home page. In April 2017 I organized a fundraiser in the Bay Area with Alex Honnold and Conrad Anker, raising $50,000.

All images are my own.

Instructor Portraits & Oral Histories

As KCC becomes a self sustaining program, it has majority Sherpa and Nepali instructors teaching its trainings. In Phortse, Nepal I photographed portraits and conducted oral history interviews of the instructors. This effort was crucial for humanizing the program for donors and facilitating additional tourism business for graduates of the program.
