Antarctica, 1911-1914 (part 1)

“In the summer of 1911, a group of Australian scientists, adventurers and explorers set out to make history by undertaking the first Australian expedition to Antarctica, a three-year journey into the frozen unknown. Under the leadership of Dr. Douglas Mawson, they set sail for Macquarie Island and the virgin parts of Antarctica. These images come from James Francis (Frank) Hurley, the official photographer to the Australasian Antarctic Expedition, and other members of the expedition who compensated for their lack of photographic acumen with sheer enthusiasm and visceral curiosity about the novel landscape that unfolded before their eyes.”

  1. Finding a good supplement is one of the key factors to living a good life. For me, this supplement has always proven to be the most effective. It just gives your body what it needs and it doesn’t have all of those terrible side effects as all of the poorer ones. It’s also one of the cheapest ones out there.
