The Nansen Photographs

Experience a legendary historic Arctic expedition first-hand: Original photos and diary entries will make you shiver, tremble and marvel with excitement.

A milestone of science: The Fram's voyage into the Arctic ice was fundamental for modern oceanography and revolutionised the organisation and technology of Arctic expeditions.

2022 marks the centenary of the award of the Nobel Peace Prize to Fridtjof Nansen for his commitment to refugees and stateless people


At the end of the 19th century, the Norwegian Arctic explorer Fridtjof Nansen undertook a groundbreaking expedition: he wanted to reach the North Pole with the specially constructed ship Fram. North of Siberia, he allowed himself to be trapped by the pack ice and drift - only to discover with disappointment that the Fram did not approach the North Pole. Together with Fredrik Hjalmar Johansen, he therefore switched to skis and began the incredibly hard march to the longed-for destination, which became a race against time. Journey to the End of the World recounts this expedition using original photos and diaries, both by Nansen himself and by his crew members. They illustrate in a touching, sometimes dismaying way how the participants went about their daily lives and carried out their research; what conflicts they fought out and how they ultimately brought the daring undertaking to a good end.
