Abstract

The Nature of Ice' comprises a dual narrative with two Antarctic stories set one century apart. The contemporary strand concerns three central characters: Freyr Jorgensen, a photographer working for a summer at Davis Station who is inspired by Frank Hurley's early Antarctic photography; Davis Station chippie Chad McGonigal, assigned as Freyr's field assistant; and Freyr's husband Marcus, who is at home in Perth researching the 1911-14 Australasian Antarctic Expedition (AAE) in preparation for Freyr's Antarctic photographic exhibition.
