Think you will like Evgenia Arbugaeva‘s photographs of the Even girls living in the settlement of Topolinoe, Yakutia’s Tomponsky region, Siberia/Russia. All of them are very impressive and beautiful.

In pictures you can see the girls of the Baishevs, who are well known in Yakutia (Siberia, Russia) for their attempts to keep the Even culture safe, untouched and authentic. They are reindeer herders and they keep their own deer in the depth of the Verkhoyansky mountain area.

Evgenia is a young photographer. She is a big fan of the nomadic people. A few years ago she published a book with her photographs of Siberian nomads. Yup, it is dedicated to the Even people. Currently Evgenia is taking photography courses in New York.

  3. i grew up in Khandyga.left it in1978. your pictures brought the best back -memories of childhood ,friends and so much more .thank you so much.

  4. I have just found my way to your exquisite photos of Little Even nomad girls in Topolinoe — thank you so much for posting them. I found my way to your photos following threads leading from a New Yorker article by Ian Frasier describing a trip he made to Siberia. I am really enjoying the history and photos I’m uncovering about Yaktusk and the region. I live in a cold place, too, Ely, in far northern Minnesota. We have snow and cold weather about six months of the year — our coldest day this past winter was minus 44F. My connection to your part of the world has been 35 years of breeding, raising, and training Samoyeds — including working with them as herding dogs (sheep — no reindeer here!). Thank you also for your pictures of Siberian huskys! Stay warm!

  5. Apologies for my error in spelling Yakutsk!
