Face to Face: Polar Portraits
May 22nd, 2009

A lavish account of pioneering polar photography and modern portraiture, Face to Face brings together in a single volume both rare, unpublished treasures from the historic collections of the Scott Polar Research Institute (SPRI), University of Cambridge, alongside cutting-edge modern imagery.

The first book to examine the history and role of polar exploration photography, Face to Face is a unique project of unsurpassed quality. Face to Face features the very first polar photographs, the first portraits of explorers, some of the earliest photographs of the Inuit, and other rare images never before published.

Alongside fifty of the world’s finest historic polar portraits from the SPRI collections are fifty modern-day images by leading expedition photographer Martin Hartley, who has captured men and women of many nations, exploring, working, and living in the Polar Regions today, including Arctic Kingdom’s founder and CEO (that’s Chief Expedition Officer), Graham Dickson.
