    PDF DOWNLOAD [The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott] AUTHOR David M. Wilson Fantastic Really fantastic I wasn't sure what to expect from this one before I opened it up but I suppose I assumed that the Unseen Images from the Legendary Antarctic Expedition would be accompanied by the usual retelling of Scott's last expedition and that there wouldn't really be much new to be learned from it though I anticipated the photographs would be beautiful and haunting and well really interesting Which they

review The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott 103 Cle Bill' Wilson and the celebrated photographs of Herbert Ponting Yet for the final fateful months of their journey the systematic imaging of this extraordinary scientific endeavor was left to Scott himself trained by Ponting In the face of extreme climactic conditions and technical challenges at the dawn of photography Scott achieved an iconic series of images; breathtaking polar panoramas geographical and geological formations and a. The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott by David M Wilson while based on the recent rediscovery of photographs taken during Robert Scott s ill fated Antarctic expedition of 1910 1913 is really a meditation on reputation and remembranceI am just going outside and may be some time These words uttered by expedition member Lawrence Oates before he sacrificed himself to save his companions on the trek back from the pole have always chilled me We know of this only because Scott wrote about the incident in his diary Of course Oates sacrifice came to naught Scott and his companions died just eleven miles short of the depot that could have saved their lives From one point of view this is all of piece Scott failed to reach the pole before Amundsen unlike Shackleton he failed to keep his companions alive and failed to keep himself alive Racing to the South Pole may be the ultimate boy s own adventure but Scott bungled itOr did he For that matter what was he racing towards Wilson argues that there was no race at least not one that Scott cared about The polar expeditions of the 19th and early 20th centuries were undertaken for a variety of motives with a tension between exploration ua adventure and exploration for scientific purposes Scott conceived of his expedition as a scientific one while it may have been necessary for fundraising and publicity to promote a goal of reaching the pole first and planting the King s flag on it Scott was interested in the geographic and scientific discoveries that the trip could revealTo that end Scott hired Herbert Ponting as expedition photographer and gave him a free hand to euip the expedition with all of the photographic euipment necessary for scientific purposes Ponting was perhaps one of Scott s best hires not only did he innovate techniues for using very awkward photographic euipment under harsh conditions to produce gorgeous results he trained Scott and other expedition members to be passable polar photographers as well However as Ponting was not up to the rigors of the run to the Pole in 1912 he returned home to catalog the photographs and await Scott s return to mount an exhibitionBy the time Ponting reached England Scott was already dead Ponting s own plans came to naught The absence of Scott wrangling over the rights to the photographs and the advent of World War I served to bury Ponting s photographs as well as the ones taken by Scott himself Besides why would the martyr s photographs be of interest than the martyr himself By the latter part of the 20th century Scott s reputation had fallen under attack Why would a bungler s pics be of any interest Moreover where was a competent archivist to be found NowhereReality Rating B It perhaps was not until now with recent efforts to rehabilitate or at least re vision Scott s reputation that there was fertile ground for the rediscovery of these photographs Wilson tells a tale that is bittersweet on many levels and places Scott and his final expedition in the center of some important dichotomies The book is also visually stunningCaveat My review copy of this book was a PDF from NetGalley As it turned out this is not a book that works well on current ebook readers Attempting to read it on my iPad was a rather frustrating experience and until Apple comes out with the iCoffeeTable or unless you have a very large monitor if you buy this book get it in print

review The Lost Photographs of Captain Scott 103 Ction photographs of the explorers and their animals remarkable for their technical mastery as well as for their poignancy Lost fought over neglected and finally resurrected Scott's final photographs are here collected accurately attributed and catalogued for the first time a new dimension to the last great expedition of the Heroic Age and a humbling testament to the men whose graves still lie unmarked in the vastness of the Great Alon. Not a lot of new information in here for anyone who s familiar with Antarctic exploration though there are some interesting notes about what happened in later years to some members of the expedition particularly Ponting The main reason to check this out is the photos which really help the reader understand what the conditions were like I think the most notable pictures are several photos of a group man hauling a sledge up the Beard Glacier the photos demonstrate how awful and difficult man hauling really was Another favorite is a photo of Dr Wilson sketching a line of mountains on the Beard with a copy of his actual sketch juxtaposed on the page for reference The photo shows how amazingly accurate his sketches were Side note the book s author is Wilson s great nephewDefinitely worth leafing through for anyone interested in Scott s expedition but if you re looking for details about the expedition there are much better books out there I recommend The Last Place on Earth Scott and Amundsen s Race to the South Pole
