In the 1890s two young naturalists were sent on expeditions to the Arctic to collect specimens for the Zoology Museum of Professor D'Arcy Thompson at University College, Dundee. They also took photographic equipment with them and captured some fascinating shots of life among the whalers and the native people of some of the northernmost settlements on Earth.
Drawn from three separate collections, these photographs have never before been exhibited together. The exhibition has been created by the University of Dundee Museum Services in partnership with the University of St Andrews School of Art History, the University of St Andrews Library Special Collections, Dundee Art Galleries & Museums and Perth Museum & Art Gallery.
The exhibition has been created to accompany the Polar Visual Culture conference at the University of St Andrews.
