Scott, Shackelton and Antarctic photography

William Bradford (1823-92)

The Arctic regions, illustrated with photographs taken on an expedition to Greenland 1873

RCIN 1070274

The photographers George Critcherson and John Dunmore, from the studio of J. W. Black in Boston, accompanied the artist-explorer William Bradford on the voyage of the Panther in 1869 to Greenland to take photographs to guide his paintings. However, these photographs were considered to be wonderful works of art in their own right, and were published in 1873 in The Arctic Regions. The photographs provide a fascinating glimpse at the Arctic, with images of both the scenery of Greenland and Inuit who live there.
