photobook by Fyodor Telkov, Sergey Poteryaev published by Snowfox Works

From 2012 to 2014, Fyodor Telkov and Sergey Poteryaev traveled the regions of north Russia, documenting the lives of Mansi, Selkup, Nenets and Khanty native people. The book tells a complicated story of the interaction between cultures, the gradual disappearance of the old ways, and inevitable changes driven by global processes.

The wild beauty of harsh northern nature and traditional life in a herding camp represent only one end of the spectrum. In this project, the photographers tried to capture the whole range of stages of transition to ‘modern’ urban life on the North Line. The sequence joins together the portraits of local people of different ages, professions, life stories, landscapes in the changing seasons, interiors of people’s homes, and still lifes that represent the whole diversity of states of this transition. Those details of everyday life uncover new layers of meanings and the complexity of this process that melts together religious and cultural influences traditional habits with modern lifestyle to create new forms, some of which germinate into new culture, but some are short-lived and ephemeral. The importance of capturing and documenting these states is vital to understanding not only the perception of belonging of these people but our own quest for identity.
