Mark Cottle is reprising his talk on the photographic legacy of Ernest Shackleton’s Endurance expedition on Saturday 7th December at 11.00am.
The aim of the lecture is to tell the story of the expedition through the photographs by Frank Hurley, the expedition’s photographer and a pioneer in the emerging world of photo-journalism. Greenstreet, First Officer on the Endurance, called him “a warrior with his camera who would go anywhere or do anything to get a picture”. Hurley’s photographs form the visual narrative of an epic journey, capturing new and amazing landscapes in which a great human drama is played out.
Born in the Isles of Scilly and educated at Truro School in Cornwall and Birmingham University, Mark Cottle has spent over 20 years lecturing in history. He has always been fascinated by the sea and its stories.
