Photograph of Dr. Fridtjhof Nansen taken by Frederick Jackson, leader of the Jackson-Harmsworth Polar Expedition, at Elmwood, Franz Josef Land, 1896. The Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition went to Franz Josef Land with the intention of making an attempt to reach the North Pole. However, while preparing for their attempt, Fridtjhof Nansen and his companions of the 'Fram' expedition found them. Nansen warned Jackson off making an attempt for the North Pole and Jackson was happy to look after Nansen's tired group and convey them back to safety.
