[Shackleton’s Hut, Ross Island, Antarctica]

1958/2004. Digital print from negative-based image, signed in pencil in lower margin, 30.2 x 38cm.

A 1958 print of this image was annotated “Ross Island, Cape Royds. Ernest Shackleton and his men erected their prefabricated hut here on their 1907 expedition. In 1958, when this photograph was taken, foodstuffs, medical supplies and equipment were all still there as if members of the expedition were only out for a brief absence and about to return. A small darkroom, complete with chemicals, stood in one corner of the hut.”
