Late adventurer's photos on display
Photography by Ron Fear

Newspaper article
Tacoma New Tribune
December 1973


A display of exceptional photographs taken by the late Ron Fear on his mountain-climbing expedition is now on display in the Silver Image Photo Gallery.

Fear, a well-known Tacoma skier and mountain climber who died last summer in a Peruvian river mishap, spent most of his 29 years on adventurous expeditions and climbs. The display of photography at the Silver Image is a visual journal of his travels. Powerful images of wind carved ice, glaciers and imposing mountains contrast sharply with touching photos of children at play, flowers and old people. Photographs of mountains of ice and snow and climbers' obstacles depict a courageous adventurer's life. A continuous slide presentation of flowers, natives, children and mountains also will be presented during the show.

The Silver Image Gallery is owned by Dan Fear, brother of the young climber, and the display, is sort of memorial photo exhibit. The photography will be on display through January 5 and may be seen from noon to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
