Description

Herbert Ponting was one of the greatest camera artists of the early 20th century. He is best known for his Antarctic work were he portrayed in vivid detail the lives of the men who went south with Captain Scott. However, Ponting was also a world traveller, and his photographs of Japan, China, and India are exquisite, allowing a tantalizing glimpse of cultures long since changed. About 80% of this stunningly illustrated work features photos from the Antarctic.
