National Geographic Photographer In ‘Tribute To Discomfort’

“I think adventure is anything that puts us outside our comfort zone,” says photographer Cory Richards.

In this video, “A Tribute To Discomfort: Cory Richards,” by Blue Chalk, the National Geographic Creative photographer and The North Face athlete discusses his creative process. (It can include not being able to feel his fingers in the cold, or having his face “sandblasted” by snow and ice.)

Richards’ intimate portraits and stunning landscape photographs form the backdrop for this beautiful 4-minute film. —Sean McCoy
