EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph captures the momentous return of G. H. Wilkins from his expedition in The Quest with Sir Ernest Shackleton. Taken by photographers Thomas E. Grant and Horace Grant in Plymouth on September 16th, 1922, this image showcases the remarkable journey undertaken by these intrepid explorers. Sir George Hubert Wilkins was a multi-talented Australian polar explorer, ornithologist, pilot, soldier, geographer, and photographer. This particular expedition marked Shackleton's final voyage to Antarctica before his untimely death later that year. The photo depicts Wilkins standing tall on the deck of The Quest as it arrives back home after their arduous adventure to the South Pole. His presence exudes a sense of triumph and accomplishment as he gazes into the distance with determination. Intriguingly, amidst all the equipment aboard the ship is a camera mounted on a tripod - a testament to Wilkins' passion for photography and documentation of their extraordinary experiences. The image not only captures an important historical moment but also conveys a sense of anticipation for what lies ahead in terms of exploration and discovery. It serves as a powerful reminder of humanity's relentless quest for knowledge about our planet's most remote regions. This photograph is now part of a private collection but continues to inspire awe and admiration for those who dare to venture into uncharted territories in pursuit of scientific understanding and adventure.
