Mount De La Beche from the Tasman Glacier (gelatin silver print; George Moodie (New Zealand photographer, 1865-1947); Burton ...; 1893; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa (Wellington, Welling...; O.000729)
Note: Besides their visual appeal, Moodie's alpine photographs are a triumph of physical endurance and simple technology. The lens in Moodie's camera had a perspective similar to that of the human eye, which meant he needed to climb in order to get in close to his subject. On the Tasman Glacier, Moodie remedied the problem of too much glare from the ice by placing coats on the ground at the base of the camera. He exposed one hundred and seventy-six negatives during the trip, and he employed two men to help him carry the heavy 8 x 10-inch glass plates along with their provisions. (Lissa Mitchell, 2009)
