Ivan Kobilyakov

IVAN KOBILYAKOV graduated from Moscow State University (MGU) with a degree in geography. He took part in many scientific expeditions to Siberia and the Russian North sponsored by MGU’s Geography Faculty. His love for Russian nature and the people who live in the country’s furthest reaches led him to a career in writing and photography, and he wrote for several Russian journals, including Zerkalo Mira, Kvantik, Discovery and others. His article for Russian Life on mine rescue workers in Norilsk won first prize for reporting in the Russian Union of Journalists' 2016 All Russian Contest for Young Journalists, "Call of the 21st Century." Tragically, Ivan passed away all too young, in December 2019. But his work lives on through those who knew him and a book of Putorano Fairy Tales published nearly a year after his death.
