New, Rare Images Of African Black Panther
Breaking news from NaturePL: British photographer Will Burrard-Lucas has just come back from photographing a black leopard in Kenya. His images are thought to be the first scientific documentation of such a creature in Africa in nearly a century.
’It took a few days before it sank in,’ says Will, who captured the images using a plethora of camera traps. For him, photographing this special individual was a dream come true. ’As I scrolled through the images on the back of the camera, I paused and peered in incomprehension... a pair of eyes surrounded by inky darkness... a black panther! For me, no animal is shrouded in more mystery, no animal is more elusive, and no animal is more beautiful.’

Mary Evans Collection of the Week - John Barrett
Collector John Barrett’s photographic images span the first 30 years of the 20th century, and are the original photographic prints used in the picture book The Pageant of the Century published in 1933 by Odhams Press. By a stroke of luck, they have this book in the Mary Evans archive, and though the title might seem a little grandiose when it covers only the first third of the 1900s, it’s nevertheless an engaging record of the new era of possibility.
The image set includes maidservants having a jolly bank holiday time on Hampstead Heath in 1900; trenches dug across the street in First World War France; a fashionable beach scene in Dieppe in 1932 when the Yo-Yo was the craze of the moment; and a nightclub cloakroom and hat check in the 1930s manned by Brylcreemed young men.
