Beyond the World of the Living



Beyond the World of the Living
Mikhail Cheryomkin

When I was a child, I often overheard the hushed conversations of adults alluding to the fact that, starting in the 1930s, there had been concentration camps for political prisoners in our region’s most remote and inaccessible reaches.

As I was a young boy at the time, I did not fully grasp the meaning of these conversations, but they generated in me an intense curiosity to see these places.

Many years passed, and I began to pursue photography seriously and to travel Russia and the world with my camera.
