Краткое описание

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

In this treasure trove of photographs and artifacts from the royal collection at Windsor Castle, the stories of Britain's two greatest Antarctic expeditions are told in the up-close, at times heartbreaking images of their official chroniclers, as they were presented to King George V. From Herbert Ponting's striking 1911 image of Robert Falcon Scott's ship Terra Nova glimpsed through the mouth of an ice grotto to Frank Hurley's ghostly 1915 portrait of Ernest Shackleton's ice-coated and doomed ship Endurance, these are some of the most iconic and telling images of polar exploration ever made. Some are larger than 18 x 11 inches here, and all of them are beautifully reproduced in color to retain their original tints. Three essays and extensive commentary are contributed by two royal archivists and explorer David Hempleman-Adams, the first man to reach both geographic and both magnetic poles and climb the highest peaks on all seven continents."This book lovingly reproduces the best of [the] photographs, and brings the reader tantalizingly close to the heroes of these expeditions and the suffering and sorrow they endured. The text throughout is excellent; the authors describe Ponting's famous photograph of a ship seen through a sloping ice grotto 'as significant an image as Neil Armstrong standing on the moon for the first time'."—NYTimes
