There are few people better suited to offer their perspective on a life of travel and adventure than Renan Ozturk. If you’ve seen the film Meru you know a bit about his backstory, which has had its share of challenges along the way. In this video, Renan talks about his path to becoming a world-class mountaineer, but shares that it wasn’t always the climbing that provided the thrill he was looking for, but was instead exploring the remote corners of the globe that few other people ever get a chance to see. Travel tends to have that effect on us, broadening our horizons, making unexpected connections, and sending us home a different person. In this case, Ozturk has been able to channel that energy into his filmmaking, photography, and art, creating new perspectives for all of us.
