This exhibition brings together archival images taken between 1881 and 2013, revealing the history of these inaccessible places which continue to fascinate. Nearly 200 years have passed since the first photographs were taken of the Arctic. The selection of images, gathered from various collections, show us not only the technical evolution of photography, but also the climate change in these remote regions and the cultural transformations of the northern peoples.
