Join Alasdair MacLeod, the Society’s Head of Collections for this free talk as he describes the role of Frank Hurley, the photographer and film-maker commissioned by Ernest Shackleton to document his attempt to be the first to cross the continent of Antarctica.


In his illustrated talk, Alasdair considers the early influences on Hurley’s later photographic career, charting his work in Australia and his first foray south to the Antarctic with the Professor Douglas Mawson, before examining the extraordinary legacy of his images taken during the ‘Endurance’ expedition and which lie at the heart of the Society’s exhibition ‘Enduring Eye’ currently on show at the Hull Maritime Museum.
