EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph, titled "A R Wallace" by Victor Evstafieff, depicts the renowned naturalist and co-discoverer of the theory of natural selection, Alfred Russel Wallace. The image was taken at Down House in Kent, where Wallace visited Darwin numerous times to discuss their shared scientific discoveries. Alfred Russel Wallace (1823-1913) is recognized for independently developing the theory of natural selection, which he presented in a paper to the Linnean Society of London in 1858. This paper, along with Charles Darwin's own submission on the same day, prompted Darwin to publish his groundbreaking work, "On the Origin of Species," in 1859. Wallace's support for Darwin's theory was unwavering, and he later published a book, "Darwinism," in 1889, which aimed to explain the theory to a broader audience. In this photograph, Wallace's intellectual curiosity and passion for the natural world are evident, as he stands confidently in front of a bookshelf filled with scientific literature. The photograph was taken at Down House, Darwin's family home in Kent, where Wallace spent many productive days discussing their theories and exchanging ideas. The historical significance of this image lies not only in the depiction of a pivotal figure in the history of science but also in the reminder of the intellectual collaboration and friendship between two of the greatest scientific minds of all time.
