Lawrence Oates was only one of many expedition members Herbert Ponting photographed and filmed during Robert Scott’s Terra Nova expedition. When news broke in early 1913 of the deaths of Scott, Oates and other members of the South Pole party, images of Oates and his companions appeared in publications all over the world, in expedition reports, exhibitions, postcards and in Ponting’s cinema-lectures.

Herbert Ponting and Lawrence Oates: illustrated talk by Anne Strathie

Lawrence Oates was only one of many expedition members Herbert Ponting photographed and filmed during Robert Scott’s Terra Nova expedition. When news broke in early 1913 of the deaths of Scott, Oates and other members of the South Pole party, images of Oates and his companions appeared in publications all over the world, in expedition reports, exhibitions, postcards and in Ponting’s cinema-lectures. But when war broke out in 1914, Ponting’s images of Oates acquired an additional significance for men serving on the Western Front.

Anne Strathie, biographer of Herbert Ponting and other members of Scott’s last expedition, looks at Ponting’s and Oates’s shared history and enduring legacy. Books will be available after the event (cash only).
