Saturday afternoon Rob & I went with friends to the opening of the exhibition of the lost photographs of Captain Scott from his fatal expedition of 1911/12.

 

These unique photos were found only recently in the basement of a photgraphic studio in London. They were sold at auction in New York and restored by ATLAS Gallery.

 

Capitan Robert Falcon Scott reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, after the Norwegian Roald Amundsen (14 December, 1911) and died, with his four companions, on the way back.  His black & white photos are extraordinary and quite moving.

 

The exhibition runs from 17 March to 6 May 2012
