In the far north of Russia, on the Taimyr Peninsula, indigenous peoples continue to live according to their traditional way of life. They wander from place to place with their herds of deer. The photo depicts a Nenets family, the Vengas.
The indigenous peoples of the north spend all their lives in the tundra from birth to ripe old age. Except for the time when children leave to study in boarding schools. It was surprising for me to learn that they are not hostages to the situation, they have a choice. Many families have apartments in communities, but they do not want to live in them. At their own free will, they choose to roam the endless expanses of the tundra all their lives. They don't need another life.
