PHOTO TRIP TO THE NOMAD PEOPLE OF THE YAMAL PENINSULA

With the reindeer herders under the northern lights

MARch 21ST - 27th 2022
We are in the middle of the tundra. In the middle of nowhere, there are a few tchoums and a few hundred reindeers. That's how the Nenets live, the nomadic people of the Yamal region in Russia.Nenets go about their daily tasks, prepare meals on a wood stove in the middle of the tchoum, look after the reindeers, fix the sleds, sing, and dance their traditionnal dances. We really immerse ourselves in the culture of these people cut off from « civilization », while living their lifestyle, far away from the noises of the city, in harmony with nature.
