Face to Face, Polar Portraits By Huw Lewis-Jones

Face to Face, Polar Portraits By Huw Lewis-Jones

Description

This unique book is the first to examine the history and role of polar exploration photography and showcases the very first polar photographs of 1845 through to images of the present day. It features the first portraits of explorers, some of the earliest photographs of the Inuit, the first polar photographs to appear in a book and rare images never before published from many of the Heroic-Age Antarctic expeditions. Almost all the historic imagery - daguerreotypes, magic lantern slides, glass plate negatives and images from private albums - have never been before the public eye.

The Continent of Antarctica By Julian Dowdeswell and M Hambrey

The Continent of Antarctica By Julian Dowdeswell and M Hambrey

Description

This book attempts to bring together our accumulated experience of the Antarctic continent, through what we hope is a combination of an accessible but informative text, supported by a series of photographs. The selection of photographs, which are mostly our own, was a particular pleasure, reminding us of the many remote and beautiful places we have seen as part of our scientific work.
