Born in Australia, Hurley had a remarkable life. He spent more than four years in Antarctica in total, first as official photographer on Douglas Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition from 1911 to 1914.
From 1914 to 1917, Hurley photographed Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, and was marooned on the ice with the rest of the 'Endurance' crew.
After rescue from the ice, Hurley became a war photographer in both World Wars, capturing many stunning battlefield scenes and risking his life to document the conflict.
Hurley's fascination with capturing images extended to moving pictures, and he is also known for filming Antarctic expeditions, war zones and the building of Sydney Harbour Bridge, along with making many documentary and feature films.
