Photos from the 1914-1917 Shackleton Expedition
Check out some of photographer Frank Hurley’s color photos from the ill-fated and awe-inspiringly hardcore Endurance voyage.
These photos are part proto-Hipstamatic, part sub-zero badass. The greys from the B&W shots are mainly replaced with shades of blue. The muted reds are striking, since they’re competing with natural monochrome.
No photos of Shackleton’s whiskey, though.
This guy’s like, “Yeah, I’m in Antarctica, but I don’t need gloves… no big deal…”
From stuck in the ice in black and white… to stuck in the ice in color.
