FRANK HURLEY'S ANTARCTICA
Frank Hurley is best known for his stunning Antarctic photographs. Here, Helen Ennis discusses some of his most famous images and the conditions in which they were taken. Spread throughout the book are images of typescripts from Huxley's diaries, held in the National Library of Australia, written during both the Mawson and Shackleton expeditions, his words describing the landscape with an artist's eye. For Hurley, image-making and exploration went hand in hand and he sought out exalted experiences, through physical struggle, through relationships with the natural world and through story telling. This book brings to life his passion for photography and for making art, and his own spirit of survival. Over 60 stunning images from the Library's collection tell this amazing story of courage and accomplishment.
