"Hyperborea" offers a captivating visual journey into the Siberian Arctic through the lens of Evgenia Arbugaeva, who intimately knew this world from her childhood in Tiksi.

The photobook reveals the fragile yet beautifully desolate landscapes and the lives of those dwelling in the extreme conditions of the Laptev Sea region. Arbugaeva's meticulously composed photographs are infused with otherworldly colors, capturing the raw vibrancy of the Arctic climate and the quiet intensity of secluded lives.

This beautifully produced collection spans a decade of Arbugaeva's work, showcasing images from various series and extensive travels along the Russian Arctic coast. The photographs depict a connected world where humans, nature, sky, and land coalesce in elemental solitude and a slower pace of life. The book invites contemplation of a territory under existential threat from environmental changes, presenting a place of longing and imagination.

Featuring an introduction by anthropologist Piers Vitebsky, Arbugaeva's texts, and a specially commissioned map, "Hyperborea" is a collectible for photobook enthusiasts, introducing a global audience to the exceptional talent of Evgenia Arbugaeva in the realm of photography.
