Endurance Image gallery

Frank Hurley's striking images of Shackleton's ill-fated Endurance and expedition are some of the most famous images of Antarctic exploration. As the official photographer on board, he photographed under the harshest of conditions.

He salvaged glass plates and film from the sinking Endurance, however lost about 400 glass negatives on the ice. The remainder of their odyssey was documented with only a handheld Vest Pocket camera and three rolls of film.

His images are an enduring record of this most remarkable expedition of endurance and survival.
