Freeze Frame

Historic Polar Images, 1845-1982, from the Scott Polar Research Institute

The Scott Polar Research Institute holds a world-class collection of photographic negatives illustrating polar exploration from the nineteenth century onwards. Freeze Frame is the result of a two-year digitisation project that brings together photographs from both Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. In digitising this resource the Scott Polar Research Institute has enabled browsing through the collection by date, expedition, or photographer, or by searching the content directly. The Freeze Frame project is funded as part of the JISC digitisation programme and is hosted by the University of Cambridge in collaboration with DSpace@Cambridge.
