Newly Restored Images of Shackleton’s Fateful Antarctic Voyage Offer Unique Details of Survival

In what may be one of the history’s most famous notable failures, explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton and 27 other men set out on the Imperial Trans Antarctic Voyage in 1914 to make the first land crossing of Antarctica. The team had only reached the continent when their ship was engulfed and crushed by ice. Freezing in cold conditions, all 28 men survived for almost 17 months in temporary camps in an extreme trek back to civilization. Despite losing their ship, expedition photographer, Frank Hurley was able to save his camera gear, working in uncommonly severe conditions to record their difficulty.
