Belgium hosted an exhibition of photographs of the Chukchi North

The famous Russian wildlife photographer Sergei Gorshkov organized an exhibition of his works “Russian Arctic. Wrangel Island ". This was reported by the press service of the administration of the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.

For several years, the author filmed the fauna of one of the most inaccessible reserves in the world - Wrangel Island, located in the Arctic Ocean between the East Siberian and Chukchi Seas. The photographer presented pictures of the poor in its views, but unique animal world of the Chukchi North. In particular, the heroes of his works are Vinogradov's endemic lemming, arctic fox, wolf and wolverine, ermine and fox, polar bear, walruses and birds.

According to the Governor of Chukotka Roman Kopin, the study of the fauna of Wrangel Island gave the photographer not only unique material for shooting, but also a colossal life experience. The head of the region emphasized that Sergei Gorshkov saw the real thing that the Arctic is fraught with. “It is gratifying to note that Sergey Gorshkov so sincerely and comprehensively revealed life on Wrangel Island - often and even often dangerous,” Roman Kopin emphasized. The governor also noted that every photo of Sergei Gorshkov has a story and emotion. It is doubly pleasant, Roman Kopin appreciated that the photographer shared these animalistic stories about Chukotka with the inhabitants of Belgium.
