Russian Miner Working In The Arctic Circle Spends His Work Breaks Capturing Rare Photos of Foxes Enjoying The Snow

by Damjan

Metaphorically, if the earth were flat, the Chukotka region would be on the edge of that plate. In this remote northern region of Russia, where spring and summer do not exist, and where life can be very harsh, one photographer found beauty among the inhabitants of this area - foxes!

Ivan Kislov lives in the port city of Magadan, and in fact, works as a mining engineer and uses his spare time for photographs. During long shifts at work, taking pictures is a "relaxation from routine".

He uses long walks to observe nature, and he adores "hikes to inaccessible places, rafting." He likes to photograph all animal inhabitants, from wolves, bears, deer ... but the foxes have some unique charm; they love to pose.

"Foxes are curious and can come very close, and I shoot with wide-angle and telephoto lenses."
