FIDELMAN: A BODY OF WORK is a captivating retrospective book that chronicles legendary climber Dean Fidelman's career as a photographer.

From the daring pioneers of the 1970s, to his work on sound stages, and culminating with the groundbreaking "Stone Nudes" series, Fidelman's images offer a breathtaking exploration of the climbing world throughout the decades. The book goes beyond stunning visuals, for it celebrates the transformative power of climbing and the beauty of capturing life's fleeting moments through the lens. Dean Fidelman has been climbing and photographing climbers for more than forty years, having shot other trailblazers in the climbing community, such as Dean Potter, John Long, Lynn Hill, John Bachar, and more. When he was sixteen years old and befriended this group, his photographic documentation of Yosemite's legendary "Stonemasters" began. In 2009, Fidelman teamed up with John Long and co-authored YOSEMITE IN THE 1950S and THE VALLEY CLIMBERS. Fidelman's "Stone Nudes" project began in 1999, with calendars first, then with the published collection.

Together, Dean Fidelman and John Long have yet again created a masterfully put-together book, combining Long's words and Fidelman's photography. Having decades of experience in their respective fields, FIDELMAN: A BODY OF WORK is a showcase of their expertise and their passion.

Embark on a visual odyssey through the illustrious career of Dean Fidelman, from the daring pioneers of the 1970s to his groundbreaking "Stone Nudes" series. FIDELMAN: A BODY OF WORK is more than a collection of photographs; it's a profound exploration of the climbing world across decades. From sound stages to the iconic "Stonemasters" of Yosemite, Fidelman's lens captures the essence of a life dedicated to scaling heights.
