The Heart of the Great Alone: Scott, Shackleton & Antarctic Photography

21 October 2011 – 15 April 2012

This exhibition of remarkable Antarctic photography by George Herbert Ponting and Frank Hurley marks the 100th anniversary of Captain Scott’s ill-fated journey to the South Pole.

Ponting’s dramatic images record Scott’s Terra Nova expedition of 1910–12, which led to the tragic death of five of the team on their return from the South Pole.  Both collections of photographs were presented to King George V and are today part of the Royal Photograph Collection.

We love inspirational photography here at Pop Store as it often aids us in our journey to all things creative.
