Abstract [en]
This article deals with Sir Arthur de Capell Brooke's journey from Alten to Torneå in December 1920. The objectives are to show wheter snow, ice and cold are presented as frightening or merely as exotic features in text and illustrations and to highlight similarities and differences between the written travel book and the portfolio of pictures that emanated from the journey. To a great extent, ice, snow and cold function as markers of exoticism because of the dangers these elements represent. It is necessary to study both the documentations of the journey to understand the views Capell Brooke transmits to the audience
