Frank Hurley

Author: Alasdair McGregor
Publisher: Viking
ISBN: 0670073512
Release Date: 2009
Genre: Photographers

'McGregor brings a refined and educated sensibility to his examination of an important Australian life: he does his work with respect and admiration, but never with the gush of hero-worship.' John Thompson, Australian Book Review Frank Hurley was once a household name in Australia. Now most famous for his photographs of the Shackleton Endurance and Mawson Antarctic expeditions, he was also a visual chronicler of many of the major events of the twentieth century and of a rapidly disappearing non-Western world. He was an official photographer in two world wars, a pioneering documentary-maker, participant in early feats of aviation, and cinematographer on major Australian feature films of the 1930s. At the height of his fame he even knocked on Hollywood's doors. In his later years, he travelled the length and breadth of his country to produce illustrated books eulogising Australia and its people. Hurley was a man of ceaseless energy and unbounded enthusiasm for his craft who scorned authority and would stop at nothing to obtain what he deemed to be a 'perfect' result. He was an enigmatic and sometimes contradictory character - a loner who courted publicity, a curmudgeonly perfectionist, a pragmatic sentimentalist. He craved adventure, excitement and accolades, often forsaking his family and business commitments to travel and work all over the globe. In this definitive, superbly illustrated biography, Alasdair McGregor vividly describes the character, achievements and disappointments of a driven and remarkable Australian. ' . . . Dad would be very pleased as you didn't pull any punches.' Adelie Hurley

"Michael Ward worked as a press photographer on the Sunday Times for more than thirty years, specialising in pictures of actors, writers, painters and politicians. This anthology of his work catches the various moods of Britain and its stars from the 1950s to the 1980s - Diana Dors, Julie Christie, the Beatles, Alec Guinness, Barbara Windsor, and David Hockney. But it is more than a book of photography. Mostly Women tells Ward's own strange story: of a boy born to theatrical and quite spectacularly careless parents who sent him to boarding school at the age of three; of his beautiful mother, who fell in love with him; of a failed career as an actor; of his working life on a great newspaper; and of his five marriages and the women in between."--BOOK JACKET.
