In 1911, an Arctic expedition set sail to rediscover the island of Jan Mayen, which lay off the eastern coast of Greenland. Not all went according to plan, however, and the result was a series of staged images produced on the shores of Iceland.

Using the original archive and based on a script by the original expedition’s cinematographer, Cristina de Middelstaged her own series of photos on Scotland’s Isle of Skye. The two sets of images were then blended and hand-tinted in a re-telling of this hapless expedition’s story.

Printed on deadstock recycled inkjet paper and bound by hand, with an embossed black leather cover and buckle clasp. Inside the book, a concertina fold contains a further eleven concertina folds.
