Alpinist has an excellent photo essay on their site entitled Little Man, Big Mountain that has some amazing photos. The images were taken by Evrard Wendenbaum, a Swiss photographer, who has followed climbers all over the planet to take pictures of them on the rock. Along the way, he recognized that there is a big world out there to explore, and that we are a fairly insignificant, yet still striving to find our place in it.
I really like the photography here, and I’d like to see more of it. If anyone knows if the photographer has a website, post the address in the comments. It’s images like these that make me want to learn to be a better photographer myself.
