@eilenebeniquez is a Colombian/Puerto Rican/American human being, artist and hero of positive change in her community. @taylorfreesolo connected with her on IG a few years ago and the two of them have developed a friendship overtime. We recorded her story of loss, acceptance and identity in America as well as her indigenous roots in an interview recently but haven’t had the time yet to develop it further.

Anyways she passed along one of these latest @thenorthface spots in a DM today that I hadn’t seen yet (see stories). Was cool to hear her genuine appreciation for inclusivity in the exploration narrative. Nice work @freshherbst and team for continuing to push the needle on diverse approaches of exploration in all ways! #neverstopexploring

@taylorfreesolo and I climbed this mountain to show the conditions these new waterproof and impact resistant SD cards could handle. On the summit we were doing drop tests and Taylor got a little over excited and decided to fling the card into the talus. Bottomless talus. Despite the search effort the tiny card was gone but we still had some of the media from the backup 2nd card slot! 🙈🙈🙈

What I remember most about this moment was the listening to the lullabies this mother was singing to her child. [Morning light and song starting the day in the remote eastern Nepali village of Sadi] #thelasthoneyhunter @dzifoundation @natgeo

Any name guesses on this spread of misty peaks? ~

@chancepoe in dynamic backyard balance this morning. To be honest the biggest threat to my health these days isn’t recovering from a crushed skull and broken vertebrae in my neck, it’s the constant loss of fitness from a lifestyle on the road, in front of screens and bent awkwardly over camera monitors. Thanks @chancepoe for being around this past week to help train and cook delicious vegan/paleo food during our final push on one of the biggest passion projects of our lives. Please give her a follow to get inspired to take the power of wellness back into your own hands and help her as she enters the next phase of sharing this with as many people as possible - @chancepoe @loroxburgh @taylorfreesolo @baloointhewild @sonyalpha a7rii 35mm @F1.4

The most fulfilling part of climbing expeditions can happen before you even get the base of the mountain. ~ [sitting with the Rawang locals in the jungles in northern Burma - @natgeo @coryrichards @thenorthface collection] #myanmarclimb @sonyalpha a7s

Words and photos by @taylorfreesolo from the passion project ‘Ashes To Ashes’ we picture locked this weekend! “Every time we visit Winfred Rembert, after a full day of hearing his stories of surviving a lynching in the 60s or of his profound love for StarWars, we always end up on the porch for final goodbyes. Once he asked if I would make him an Obi-Wan Kenobi costume and it was harder for him not to crack a smile than it was for me. What an experience it has been working on this short film that combines his life’s work with that of Dr. Shirley Jackson Whitaker, an artist who puts on multi-day funerals for the 4,000 black men, women and children who were lynched and murdered in the U.S. during the Jim Crow era. With music and reflections and theater and eulogies. Because - Art is healing. Storytelling is healing. Working to bring this particularly special one to life has been healing.” W/ co-director @renan_ozturk and collaborators @todd.rees @themightyupsetter @versacemovs @pat.patrol, Kagan, @irving_matthew @ben_moon @rudy.le @alexandriajb
