Alma Hansen and Mt. Baker, Ray Atkeson Vintage Ski Poster
This powerful image from 1957 was captured by famed photographer Ray Atkeson. It shows Alma Hansen standing on a snow covered bluff looking over to Mt. Baker, WA. She probably hiked up with seal skins to this gorgeous spot and is ready for a great run. Though not real obvious from this small image, on the bottom of the poster, is written ALMA HANSEN MT. BAKER, WA 1957. Size 18 x 24 inches
Ray Atkeson was taking pictures and climbing mountains as early as 1933. With a terrific eye for composition and beauty rendered in the gray tones of black-and-white fine art printing, he captured sublime photos primarily throughout the Northwest United States. Atkeson received many honors for his work, including Oregon’s Photographer Laureate and induction into the Photographic Hall of Fame. Our posters are an affordable way to enjoy Atkeson’s amazing work.
