At the South Pole

Bowers and Wilson both took photographs at the South Pole. The negatives were recovered in November 1912 from the final camp and prints were subsequently made by Ponting. At the first exhibition of Ponting’s expedition photographs in 1913, these images were displayed on a separate screen in the centre of the room, mirrored by the display in the exhibition. Ponting wanted to emphasise the significance of the photographs, which he described as ‘the most tragically interesting in existence’.
