Nearly a century since they were last in the public eye, Herbert G Ponting’s rare antique polar photographs of the Terra Nova expedition are on public display for all to see again. The original 1913 carbon prints are in exceptional condition, and many remain in their original Edwardian frames.
Known as one of the most renowned photographers of his day, Ponting was recruited as “camera-artist” to the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition. This exhibition marks the centenary of the death of Captain Scott and his men.
