Product description

Produced in association with the Royal Geographical Society, London, the State Library of New South Wales, Sydney, and the Scott Polar Research Institute, Cambridge, this beautifully designed book contains the complete collection of surviving photographs from the Endurance expedition to Antarctica (1914-17), including remarkable early colour images. Capturing both the ordinary and the extraordinary, the portfolio section includes all of Hurley's most famous photographs and many others first published in the hardback edition of this book. From the Endurance trapped in the ice to the launching of the James Caird and the final rescue, every image is exquisitely reproduced. The book also contains a biography of Frank Hurley by Gael Newton, Senior Curator of Photography at the National Gallery of Australia, an account of the Endurance expedition by Shane Murphy and a critical appraisal of Hurley's place in the history of photography by Michael Gray, Director of the Fox Talbot Museum of Photography.

Author information

Frank Hurley (1885-1962) was born in Sydney and published his first photograph in 1905. He became known for dramatic images taken at considerable risk to himself, and joined the Endurance expedition in 1914. He is now recognized as one of the pioneers of photography and documentary film-making.
