In the series “Tiksi”, named after a small town in Siberia where the photographer is from, Evgenia Arbugaeva observes the peculiarities of the far north through the eyes and games of a little girl.
Between weather balloons and aurora borealis, each image is imbued with an unreal atmosphere reminiscent of fairy tales.
