This virtually untouched corner of the earth would still be recognised by the first Russian settlers, who came to Chukotka half a milennium ago. In summer, the vast space of the unforgiving tundra is filled with a dazzling variety of mosses, lichens and arctic plants. In winter, it has hundreds of shades of snow.
Ida Ruchina's spectacular photographs allow a rare glimpse at this little-explored region of outstanding natural beauty, its hardy inhabitants and their unique culture and traditions. Love and a true interest in people nurture her art. The photographs will be on sale in benefit of the Red Cross Chukotka Health Centre.
