Sir Ran­ulph Fi­ennes, Lon­don, 2014

Martin Hart­ley found in­spi­ra­tion in the po­lar por­traits of Her­bert Ponting, the pho­tog­ra­pher on Scott’s ill-fated 1912 con­quest of the South Pole, for his por­trait of Sir Ran­ulph Fi­ennes. Hart­ley says, “I wanted to see if I could em­u­late Ponting’s style with a gen­uine ex­plorer of to­day. Ran would have been among Scott’s men had he been alive in that era. Also, it was my trib­ute to Ponting and to Ran.”
