The Frozen Zone:
Associated with Sir John Franklin's Last Expedition
In April of 2004, I was fortunate enough to be invited to be part of a forthcoming documentary about the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Sir John Franklin. As part of the project, I travelled to several places associated with the Franklin saga, including King William Island and Beechey Island. The photographs which follow give, I hope, both some sense of the tremendous remoteness and beauty of these places, as well as a view of how sites associated with Franklin appear today.
