Our last blog post neglected to mention another of the whitewater photography legends we're lucky to have in our Hood River midst, Mr. Charlie Munsey. Charlie has been paddling and shooting some of the world's most adventurous whitewater for over two decades, much of which has been featured in magazines such as National Geographic and Outside Magazine.
On Wednesday November 11th at 7:30, Charlie will be giving a multi-media presentation at the Columbia Center for the Arts, featuring images and stories from Outside Magazine's historic First Descent of the Tsangpo Gorge expedition in Tibet. If you've been paddling long, you've likely read "Courting the Diamond Sow" by Wickliffe W. Walker or one of the other Tsangpo books and know the dangers of the legendary river.
In addition to photos of the Tsangpo, Charlie will also be sharing photography of other remote rivers he's visited over his career, including Canada's mighty Stikine Canyon and Tibet's Mt. Kailas.
If you enjoy whitewater or outdoor photography, this show promises to be one not to miss! Tickets for the show are $8 at the door and can be purchased ahead of time at the Kayak Shed or Columbia Center for the Arts.
