Reindeer herders of Yamal
These days we will spend in three different camps of Nenets reindeer herders, 2 days in each family. We will live with them in their hut, photograph their daily life, live amidst a herd of half-wild reindeer in the tundra. Together with our hosts, we will eat traditional dishes, predominantly reindeer meat, fish and taiga berries. Of course, there will be more familiar menus available as well. We will rest in sleeping bags, inside a traditional dwelling, and, at night, our hosts will run a generator to recharge our batteries.
We will learn how to harness the reindeer and ride them. At night we will watch the polar sky in the hope of photographing the northern lights.
