The Continent of Antarctica

The Continent of Antarctica

By Julian Dowdeswell and M Hambrey

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.

Face to Face, Polar Portraits

Face to Face, Polar Portraits

By Huw Lewis-Jones

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.

Sidney Nolan: Antarctica

Sidney Nolan: Antarctica

By Mr Anthony Plant, Heather Lane and Robert Douglas Smith

Sir Sidney Nolan is possibly Australia's most significant and internationally acclaimed artist. A special exhibition of his paintings of Antarctica is being shown at the Polar Museum at the Scott Polar Research Institute from 30 September to 18 December 2010.
Only a few of Nolan’s Antarctic works remain in Britain. They are part of a series painted in 1964 after Nolan visited the Antarctic as a guest of the US Navy during Operation ‘Deep Freeze’. The majority of the series is held in museums and galleries worldwide.
With the support of the Sidney Nolan Trust <http://www.sidneynolantrust.org/> and the Australian High Commission, the Polar Museum is delighted to present a selection from the small number of Nolan's Antarctic works which remain in Britain.
At the Adelaide festival in 1962, Nolan's friend Alan Moorehead, the Australian journalist and author, suggested a trip to the Antarctic. Moorehead, a freelance journalist for The New Yorker, then arranged for them to tour the US Naval and scientific bases in Antarctica. The visit became the inspiration for a major series of 68 paintings which Nolan completed in his studio in London. These vivid landscapes and portraits of the scientists and staff he encountered on the bases have never been shown in Cambridge before. The catalogue lists and describes the works featured in the exhibition.
