Was the interior of the lost liner simply a ruin shrouded in rust and silt? James Cameron wanted to find out. He made dives to the wreck while shooting footage for his 1997 blockbuster movie “Titanic.” Over four years he developed a specially designed lighting system, high-definition underwater cameras and robots small enough to go through Titanic’s windows and into her ghostly rooms. By 2001, he was ready to return and photograph Titanic in a whole new way. Don Lynch and Ken Marschall, have been involved with the famous White Star liner and the Titanic Historical Society for over thirty years. Their intimate knowledge of the ship helped Cameron’s high-tech robots toward some remarkable discoveries and never-before-seen images.
Following intensive research, these pictures have been matched with archival photos and dramatic illustrations to re-create Titanic’s interiors in astonishing detail. You will see incredibly amazing images: staterooms on A-deck, a mahogany luggage rack with its contents still in place; a lamp with its cord in an outlet; a bed’s ornate footboard with the remnants of clothing still draped over it; in D-33 New York Publisher Henry Sleeper Harper’s stateroom, a felt hat was found; Bruce Ismay’s B-deck parlour suite, the marble faux fireplace is still recognizable; Edith (Russell) Rosenbaum’s washstand mirror is in A-11 Here is an unforgettable journey deep into the very heart of the Titanic wreck, an expedition in words and unforgettable images and the latest chapter of the continuing saga of the legendary ship.
