Frank Hurley DVD
One of the last great imperial adventurers, Australian photographer Frank Hurley captured some of the greatest events of the 20th Century. Best known as the cinematographer on Ernest Shakleton's expedition to the Antarctic, Hurley was also a pioneer of colour photography and helped invent the documentary film. His photos of Antarctic heroes, World Wars and mysterious natives seized the imagination of all who saw them. But how real were they? Was he a giant in photography or just a conjurer with a camera?
This film sheds light on these questions and Frank Hurley's achievements.
