James Francis Hurley, OBE (born 15th of October 1885 – died 16th of January 1962) was an Australian photographer and adventurer.
He served as an official photographer with Australian forces in WW1 and WW2. His artistic style produced many memorable images.
He also used staged scenes, using composites (an image that is made from the combination of multiple images merged into a single image, like the image directly below, titled ‘Over the top’).
The incredible images on this page were taken by him in WW1.
