Hurley

/ˈhɜli/ (say 'herlee)

noun
1. Frank (James Francis Hurley), 1885–1962, Australian photographer and filmmaker; official war photographer during World Wars I and II; also noted for photography and filmmaking work in the Antarctic.
2. Sir (Thomas Ernest) Victor, 1888–1958, Australian surgeon and air vice-marshal.
Frank Hurley made his name with photographs and movies taken on Antarctic expeditions with Douglas Mawson and Ernest Shackleton, and in particular his striking images of the ice-bound Endurance. He was an official photographer in both World War I, where he recorded the Third Battle of Ypres and the Australian Light Horse Brigade in Palestine, and World War II. He often clashed with officials and other filmmakers over his unorthodox methods, such as his practice of adding details from other photographs to those he offered as definitions of reality: that is, constructing a scene rather than merely recording it. His documentaries on Papua and New Guinea were popular if controversial, and he was an important influence on later filmmakers. He concentrated on stills photography after World War II.
