Mawson’s Photographers in Antarctica – Free Webinar

State Library of New South Wales is offering this free webinar on Friday 19 June at 1pm. Bookings are essential: https://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/events/curator-talk-mawsons-other-photographers-1911-14  

Curator Talk: Mawson’s other photographers, 1911–14 

With Geoffrey Barker

The Australian Antarctic Expedition was the first Australian-led expedition to the Antarctic. It took place during what is commonly referred to as the ‘Golden Age’ of Antarctic exploration and arrived while Scott and Amundsen were conducting their famous race for the South Pole. While Frank Hurley is the best-known expedition photographer, he was based at Cape Denison and the Library’s collection contains the work of 19 other photographers, who were camped at the two other bases. This talk will introduce works by these lesser-known photographers and discuss the thousands of photographs and drawings collated by Mawson and donated to the Library between 1923 and 1947.
