This lecture sets out to capture the achievements of Frank Hurley, one of the great photographers of the C20th. He accompanied Ernest Shackleton’s 3rd Antarctic expedition in 1914 on the ship Endurance. Which was trapped and eventually crushed by the pack ice.
The crew camped on the ice for 5 months, they rowed to the remote Elephant Island and from there Shackleton sailed for help to South Georgia over 800 miles away returning to rescue his crew 3 months later. Through his photographs, Frank Hurley gave a visual narrative to this epic journey. They captured new and amazing landscapes within which this remarkable human drama played out on essentially terra incognito.
Lecturer Mark Cottle was born on the Isles of Scilly and educated at Truro School, Cornwall, and Birmingham University. His career has been spent in education and training at home and abroad. He has lectured at Exeter College on Medieval and Tudor history, St Mark’s and St John’s University College, Plymouth, and at Bath University on Anglo Saxon and Medieval England.
