The first two decades of the 20th century have been called the "heroic age" of Antarctic exploration. Photographer Herbert Ponting was inextricably linked with this era, visually recording both its challenges and successes. Ponting, a self-taught photographer, joined Captain Robert Falcon Scott during the British Antarctic (Terra Nova) Expedition in 1910. He was the first professional photographer, or "camera artist" as he described himself, to be employed on an Antarctic expedition.
 
This photograph was included in a lot sold at the Swann Galleries auction "Important 19th & 20th Century Photographs" (New York, Mon Oct 15, 2007).
