EVGENIA ARBUGAEVA’S IMAGES OF THE RUSSIAN TOWN OF TIKSI

Photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva’s pictures of the Russian town of Tiksi are incredible. In 2010 Arbugaeva returned to the town, situated on the far northern coast of the Arctic Ocean after a 19-year absence to try and capture the spirit of the place where she grew up. Her first go was disappointing, she says, the photos seemed too distant from her own childhood memories. One picture, however, stood out: the image of a young local girl sitting on her bed. Seeing herself in the girl, Arbugaeva decided to tell the story of Tiksi through Tanya’s eyes.
