A Russian Miner Spends His Downtime Taking Spectacular Photos Of Foxes In The Arctic Circle


You could be forgiven for thinking that there’s not a lot of interesting things to photograph in Russia’s remote north-eastern Chukotka region.

Despite this brutal landscape, Russian photographer Ivan Kislov has found beautiful signs of life among the foxes that live and hunt here in the wild. Kislov, who lives in the north-eastern port city of Magadan, works in Chukotka as a mining engineer. When he has time during his long shifts, he looks to photography for “relaxation from routine.” He likes to go on “hikes to inaccessible places, raftings,” or just simple walking tours to “observe the wildlife.

Though he takes pictures of everything from bears and reindeer to wolves and stoats, Kislov says the foxes are often very willing models: “Foxes are curious and can come very close, and I shoot with wide angle and telephoto lenses.
