Beautifully Rare Portraits of People Living In Remote Siberia

Beautifully Rare Portraits of People Living In Remote Siberia – My Modern Metropolis.


Camera phones and social media make it quite easy to see photographs of yourself on a daily basis. However, there are some areas that don’t have the same advanced technology and Chukotka, a remote region in Siberia, is one of these places.

In a continued exploration of the world, California-based photographer Sasha Leahovcenco decided to travel to many rarely reached villages in Chukotka to create a beautiful documentary project entitled People From the End of the Earth. During his journey, he and his traveling companions ventured 1,000 miles to meet with tribes who had never experienced visitors to their villages before.

Leahovcenco photographed local individuals in their everyday lives and, immediately after taking a photograph, he would make a print and hand it directly to his subjects. For many, this was the very first time they had ever had their photograph taken. “We hope to engage humanity’s deep rooted fascination with nature and desire to understand humanity. Perhaps by getting a glimpse of this nomadic way of life we will reflect on this modern world and what in our lives is truly important,” explains Leahovcenco.
