  • Portraits from the Arctic

    An ethnographic mission in the Dolganes' land.

    Photo by Nicolas Mingasson

    The Taimyr Peninsula is located in the far north of Siberia, beyond the Arctic Circle. This is where the Dolganes live. The young ethnologist Yann Borjon Privé went to study them. Pavel, reindeer breeder, Alexsandra, retired veterinarian, Mickail fisherman, Zoïa, nurse, … eight Dolganes tell him about their current and past lives. A serial of portraits where archival photographs summon the word. Changes with cultural, environmental, social and economic changes in this most northerly nomad population of the globe.
