arkhangelsk photographer and journalist Nikolai Gernet traveled back to the Kanin Peninsula to visit the nomadic reindeer herding families he wrote about in the Jan/Feb 2009 issue of Russian Life. He took along copies of the magazine to show the families what thousands of readers beyond Russia’s shores read about them. Then Gernet sent us these pictures to complete the circle.
After we received the photos, we asked Gernet how the remote, northern Arkhangelsk region is being affected by the global economic meltdown.
