The Lost Land

The project called "Lost Chukotka" is an attempt to preserve the history of Chukotka of the twentieth century. This land used to have its settlements, its own culture, industry, military power, it was the place where many people tried to survive. Today these places are history. Besides there are no many people left
who can tell about this land, the land which is grown with tundra today. One photographer, who lives in Anadyr, Chukotka, has presented some photos of the land and called the project "Lost Chukotka". He was striving to visit as many Chukotian places as possible and show them to the world.
