Photographer Travels For 6 Months To Photograph Indigenous People In Siberia

As a result of globalization, so many remote cultures across the world are disappearing slowly. Photographer Alexander Khimushin wanted to document these cultures, so he started his own project named The World in Faces. Khimushin has been exploring the world for the past 9 years and he has visited over 84 countries. For this project, he looks for small, ethnic minority groups. The breathtaking shots captured by Khimushin honor these amazing cultures while immortalizing them.

Khimushin has been photographing Siberian indigenous people for the past 6 months. To capture the people in this frozen land, he has traveled alone for 15,000 miles. Throughout his exploration across Lake Baikal to the coast of the Japan Sea, Khimushin was able to meet a variety of ethnic minority tribes. The population of some of these was less than several dozens.

The photographs taken by Khimushin are absolutely gorgeous. They not only reflect the unique cultures, but also the pride these indigenous people take in them. So, check them out and share your thoughts with us in the comments!
