An Antarctic Expedition, Frozen in Time
Before the “Lost Men” of Shackleton’s Ross Sea Party lost their ship (and in some cases, their lives), they took 22 photos of Antarctica. Now their pictures have been rediscovered and restored. Kelly Tyler-Lewis, author of a book on the Ross Sea Party, describes the images and what happened to the men who took them.
Kelly Tyler-Lewis is author of The Lost Men: The Harrowing Saga of Shackleton’s Ross Sea Party (Penguin, 2007) in Boston, Massachusetts.
