The Bosun (John Vincent) of the Endurance mending a net, 1915
These are Frank Hurley’s famous early colour photographs of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated Endurance voyage, as part of the British Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, 1914-1917. Hurley was the official photographer on the expedition.
Early in 1915, their ship ‘Endurance’ became inexorably trapped in the Antarctic ice. Hurley managed to salvage the photographic plates by diving into mushy ice-water inside the sinking ship in October 1915.
