We first discovered the work of Russian photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva after she attended the LensCulture FotoFest Paris portfolio reviews in 2010. Since then, her portfolios have been featured in publications around the world, most recently in The New Yorker.

The interview above was shot when Arbugaeva’s work was shown at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art as part of an exhibition titled, “ARCTIC”. In the video, she explains her decision and experience of returning to Tiksi, her childhood Siberian home.
