Abstract: 

The Scott Polar Research Institute in the University of Cambridge holds a world-class collection of photographic negatives illustrating polar exploration from 1845 to 1982.

Freeze Frame is the result of a two-year digitization project that brings together photographs from both Arctic and Antarctic expeditions. Discover the polar regions through the eyes of the explorers and scientists. Detailed catalog entries are provided for each image; all image captions are taken from original sources, where known. Browse through thousands of photos of more than twenty expeditions date, expedition or photographer, or by searching the content directly.
