The Enduring Eye is an incredible photographic record by Frank Hurley of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s exploration of the Antarctic, 1914-17. Newly digitised images revealing previously unseen details of the crew’s epic struggle for survival, before and after their ship was destroyed. Frank Hurley’s breath-taking images powerfully demonstrate how photography can truly bring history to life.

With its connections to Edward Wilson and Antarctic discovery and exploration, The Wilson is a particularly fitting venue for this captivating exhibition. Alongside one of the most dramatic survival stories of the 20th Century, The Enduring Eye brilliantly captures daily life aboard ship.
