Martin Edström is preparing for his first of many trips to Nepal over the next year to document the Saving Mount Everest Project, which is being coordinated by the Society for Cooperation Alps-Himalaya.
His full documentary in text and images will provide extensive coverage of the project through 2012. Martin will be using his iPhone 4 with MotionX-GPS to share his position on the mountain and geo-tag specific clean up locations from Base Camp up to the high ‘death zone’.
The goals of the project are to remove ten tons of rubbish from the mountain in the spring of 2011 and, together with the National Park Management, to introduce a sustainable waste disposal concept in the Everest region by the end of 2012.
In preparation for his journey, Martin has put together his standard photography equipment as well as a Brunton solar roll and storage so he is able to charge all his devices on the go. (Brunton.com)
