Tim Bowden is the author of two books on Antarctica: Antarctica and back in Sixty Days, and the jubilee history of the Australian National Antarctic Research Expeditions (ANARE), The Silence Calling - Australians in Antarctica 1947-97. Charles F. Laseron was the Taxidermist and Biological Collector aboard Mawson's Australasian Antarctic Expedition Frank Hurley (1885-1962) ran away from home at 14 to work on the Sydney docks. He bought his first camera at 17, taught himself the technical aspects of photography and set up his own posteard business. In 1910 he persuaded Douglas Mawson to hire him as his expedition photographer. He later accompanied Shackleton on his Antarctic expedition of 1914. During WWI he took some of the war's only known colour photos, "small pieces of stark muddy misery."
