Herbert Ponting, regarded as one of the greatest camera artists of the early 20th century, served as photographer and artist on Captain Robert Scott's British Antarctic Expedition of 1910-1913. It was on this expedition that Scott and four companions reached the South Pole, only to find that Norwegian Roald Amundsen had beaten them to it. Ponting is best known for his Antarctic work were he portrayed in vivid detail the lives of the men who went south with Captain Scott. Like Frank Hurley, Ponting has left us with a wealth of images covering the important early exploration of the Antarctic continent. We have two lovely images which have been reproduced as large-format prints. Text states “The Photographs of the Terra Nova Expedition - The Ice Cave - Not long after arriving in Antarctica, Ponting discovered a grotto in an iceberg, and took this photograph looking out towards the Terra Nova, about a mile distant. In the mouth of the cave, geologists Taylor and Wright can be seen inspecting the ice tunnel. Ponting himself said of this photograph, "I secured none more beautiful the entire time I was in the South".”
