Top Shots

The photographer who captured Sir Edmund Hillary’s ascent of Mt Everest hosts a retrospective at Lab X in Melbourne. Alfred Gregory documented Hillary and Tenzing’s feat in a series of images that became recognised throughout the world, the most famous showing Hillary and Tenzing approaching the summit, jokingly renamed “Hillary and Tenzing on top”. The exclusive rights to the images and story were bought by The Times for £20,000 a triumph for the paper as well as for Kodak who supplied the cameras and film that captured the famous shots. The exhibition images have been selected by Gregory from his personal collection and have been reprinted on Kodak’s new Endura paper.
