The photographs question the tremendous changes occurring in Russia’s Far North; where industrial gas exploration, climate change, and traditional life confront each other. Across two years Charles Xelot immersed himself in the Arctic and returned with powerful images that highlight human ambition. In contrast to a documentary approach, his vision of contemporary issues is imbued with symbolism.
