The Enduring Eye presents Frank Hurley’s photographs of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition (1914-1917) undertaken by renowned explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew.
100 years after the epic expedition, Hurley’s photographs remain one of the greatest ever photographic records of human survival. Scanned at the highest resolution from the Royal Geographical Society’s incomparable collection of the original glass plate and celluloid negatives, Hurley’s intrepid documentation of the expedition can be seen in stunning detail through a presentation of large format images in various mediums.
Accompanied by select artefacts from the expedition and a narrative comprised of the logs and diaries of Shackleton and his crew, Endurance brings the incredible story of human survival and the drive to explore unreached territories to life.
