    "Almost one hundred years after a group of explorers set out across the frozen landscape of Antarctica to set up supply depots for famed explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton, a box of 22 never-before-seen exposed but unprocessed negatives taken by the group’s photographer has been unearthed in one of those shacks, preserved in a block of ice."

    "This incredible discovery was made by the Conservators of the New Zealand Antarctic Heritage Trust who are working to restore an old exploration hut. The 22 cellulose nitrate negatives were, the Trust believes, left there by Shackleton’s Ross Sea Party, which became stranded on Ross Island when their ship blew out to sea during a blizzard."

    The exposed but unprocessed cellulose nitrate negatives were found earlier this year clumped together.

    This is one of my all time favorite historical stories. What the crew of the Endurance went through is simply amazing and that it was captured on film makes it even more incredible. Apparently, there was a lot more film but it was too much to carry. I'm glad they saw it important to carry as much as they could. Frank Hurley took some fascinating shots.
