Made Back East: The Wild White Mountains Eastern Mountain Sports and The North Face Partner on Nature Photography Preservation Film
Meriden, CT (October 15, 2021) – Eastern Mountain Sports has partnered with The North Face and VAGRANTS to create the second film in the Made Back East collection. The film, released on October 15th, highlights landscape and wildlife photographer Shaun Terhune of Littleton, New Hampshire.
“I was thankful and thrilled to see that this film really did capture something of the spirit of this exceptional region I love so much… Wild places like these can really only be saved and preserved if the larger public appreciates them,” says Terhune. VAGRANTS is a Production and Filmmaking company based out of Boston, Massachusetts. Quotes Director Jack LeMay: “I was hooked by the challenge of (the White Mountains) bony granite, the majesty of their ancient forests, and the rare glimpse of their awesome wildlife. I found Shaun’s photography a couple years ago and could sense that shared curiosity and passion radiating from his images.” To learn more, visit www.vagrants.com and www.madebackeast.com
“This is our second collaboration with VAGRANTS for Made Back East, and we’re incredibly excited about this one,” says Kerry Muricchio, Head of Merchandising at Eastern Mountain Sports. “It highlights the White Mountains, where gear is put to the test. What better way to outfit the crew than with The North Face and EMS? We also wanted to highlight a partner of ours, the White Mountain Trail Collective, as a call to action within the film. They do incredible work preserving the trails for future generations.”
