Footnotes

  • The photographer's copy of one of the great Antarctic images. The six men are: Victor Campbell (Commander), Murray Levick (Surgeon), Raymond Priestley (Geologist), P.O. Abbott, P.O. Browning and Seaman H. Dickason. Their clothes are shiny from the blubber of the seals on which the party survived, which combined with soot from the blubber lamps give the men their wild appearance.

    Provenance: Murray Levick, and by descent; Christies, 18 April 2000.
