Dolgan - Siberia
Dolgan | Anabar district, Yakutia_, Siberia | Russia, 2011
The Dolgan community is made up of nomadic groups that roam the northern Anabar republic of Yakutia (or Sakha) in the remote east of Russia. Yakutsk, the republic’s capital, is the coldest city on the planet, with temperatures dropping as low as -60 degrees Celsius. Dolgan means ‘people who live close to water’ – or ice in this case. They are reindeer herders who throughout the year travel across this polar landscape.
