Frank Hurley’s Antarctica

For explorer Frank Hurley, image-making and exploration went hand-in-hand. The life and work of this renowned photographer is featured in a new National Library of Australia publication, Frank Hurley’s Antarctica, by Helen Ennis.

Ennis looks at some of Hurley’s most famous images and the conditions in which the pictures were taken.

The book also features Hurley’s own words, including copies of his diaries written during both the Mawson and Shackleton expeditions.

Helen Ennis is one of Australia’s leading photographic historians and lectures in Art Theory at the Australian National University  in Canberra.
