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.

The Polar World - the unique vision of Sir Wally Herbert

The Polar World - the unique vision of Sir Wally Herbert

By Kari Herbert (editor)

Evocatively written and illustrated with the remarkable paintings of Sir Wally Herbert, The Polar World captures the spirit of the Arctic and the Antarctic as never seen before - through the eyes of a man who is the bridge between the heroic age of exploration and modern adventure; a visionary who has walked in the footsteps of all the greatest explorers, and learned the art of survival from the Inuit themselves.

Vodka on Ice

Vodka on Ice

By Charles Swithinbank

'One of the 20-tonne sledges had become frozen to the snow and could not be moved. Liosha put several sticks of dynamite under one runner and lit a length of quarry fuse. We retreated some distance before a colossal explosion shattered the runner and tossed heavy shards of steel high into the air. Many pieces fell among us. Glancing round first to check that nobody was injured, our little group collapsed in fits of laughter. The sledge, however was now unusable'.
