Invitation: Australian Geographic Society lecture - Historic Antarctic Images

#expeditioncruising



Your invitation to Australian Geographic Society's lecture: Historic Antarctic Images

As part of Aurora Expeditions Shackleton Centenary commemorations we are pleased to be supporting the next upcoming Australian Geographic Society lecture: Historic Antarctic Images.

We invite you to join our onboard historian, Alasdair McGregor, as he walks you through the imagery of Frank Hurley, the Australian photographer on the ill-fated 1914 voyage of Ernest Shackleton, whose ship, Endurance, became trapped in pack ice in the Weddell Sea.

Hurley’s evocative images are testament to an incredible story of adventure, and Alasdair – also Hurley's biographer – will use a collection of the images to bring to life the challenges and hardship Shackleton and his crew confronted during the four-year ordeal.

Date: Wednesday 11 February, 2015
Where: Metcalfe Auditorium, State Library of NSW
Time: 6.30pm
Cost: $25, including wine and canap├ęs ($20 for members)
