Col. John Blashford-Snell

These are some photographs I took of the explorer Col. John Blashford-Snell who is famous for making the first descent of the Blue Nile with a team of 60 people in 1968, and crossing the Darien Gap completed in 1972. Together with his colleagues he founded the Scientific Exploration Society, the Fairbridge Drake Society and also the infamous Operation Raleigh which has given so many young people a taste of exploration and purpose. A true pioneer of ideas and support for disadvantaged young people, of which you can read more about his projects on his web site http://www.johnblashfordsnell.org.uk/6.html .
The photography was commission to advertise Mijex mosquito repellent.
