Part 1: "Lena’s family is one of 12,000 other Nenets families still migrating today as their ancestors did for centuries, across the Yamal peninsula, above the Arctic Circle. In their native language, Yamal peninsula means “the end of the world.” Many people here ask why I’ve chosen to come during winter. “You should come in spring or summer when there is a beautiful blossom and the families are together and the temperatures are comfortable. It is most beautiful here in summer,” they all say. Coming to the Tundra now may be the ultimate challenge physically and emotionally, but that was the entire point for me- learning and experiencing the lives of the people who choose to live here in the most extreme conditions. The Nenets resilience is admirable, living against all chances. It’s hard to comprehend, and this is why I can’t wait to see for myself".
