Story of Light: Lighthouses on the Edge of the World

Posted on July 21, 2016 by Andrey


Some of the most beautiful lighthouses of Russia and the Far East are located in Primorsky Krai. It would seem that the task of lighthouses – to serve as a guiding light for ships ­– has become almost symbolic in the age of satellite technology. But this does not bother light keepers, or, as they call themselves, lightmen.

To understand what people work at lighthouses for decades, we went to the coast of Primorsky Krai and recorded their stories.

When you see a lighthouse, you feel somewhere not in Russia, and not even on the “mainland”, but in a picture from a children’s book.
