All 28 men survived the gruelling failure of the expedition when their ship was swallowed by Antarctic ice. Expedition photographer Frank Hurley documented the cold 17 months they had to endure. The photographs have now been digitized by the Royal Geographic Society (RGS) and are on display as part of the Enduring Eye: The Antarctic Legacy of Sir Ernest Shackleton and Frank Hurley exhibition. The 90 or so images depict the harshness of the Antarctic landscape as clearly as the endurance of the stranded sailors.
