Premiere Exhibition at the Australian National Maritime Museum
13 April to 3 November 2013.
February 2010, a team of 57 explorers comprising some of the world's best wildlife photographers, film makers and marine scientists - David Doubilet, Jennifer Hayes, Emory Kristof, Michael AW, Goran Ehlme, Ernest Brooks II, Amos Nachoum, Wyland, Leandro Blanco, Jenny Ross, Cabell Davis, Steve Nicol, Stuart Ireland, and Jonathan Shackleton (cousin of the legendary Sir Ernest Shackleton), embarked on a voyage to Antarctica.
The expedition loosely followed the footsteps Sir Ernest Shackleton and his crew travelled after they lost the Endurance in 1915, from the Weddell Sea, across the treacherous Drake Passage to South Georgia. The team captured the splendour of the fauna, terrain, sights and sounds of this enchanting region in a perspective that no one has ever seen before.
The Elysium team documented the current state of this last pristine wilderness: biological samples, photographic and video documentation captured every step of their journey. Their adventures is now revealed from on 13th April 2013 at the Australian Maritime Museum - the finest of the 20,000 images captured, displayed for the first time inaugural exhibition from 13th April to 4 November 2013.
