Teriberka, color, September 2016


The first time I’ve been in Teriberka (Murmansk region in the north of Russia) month ago, in august 2016. After that in september. Next time going in november and ten to one will be over there in december. Pictures which I took in this place interesting for me not only as changes in this location, but as changes inside me too. I prefer to go to the same place over and over again, or live in a certain place for a long time. My august photos from Teriberka you can see here. All new pictures was taken on Hasselblad 503cw with Carl Zeiss Planar 2.8/80. Films — Kodak Portra 400, Kodak Ektar 100 and Fujicolor Pro 400H.

I really like the stereotypes of foreigners about Russia – the snow, bears crossing the streets and people in national costumes drink vodka straight from the bottle :) But you know … sometimes reality is almost like that!

And no national clothing can be found except in museums – Russians prefer Gap, Levi’s, Calvin Klein, and similar brands. And we also drink vodka sometimes, but more often Italian, French and Chilean dry wine (red, of course, from the decanter). But what one can not take away is the snowing! For example, a couple of days ago we had a monthly norm of snow falling in one single day. This is how it looked from the window of my house:

And two days later:

In general this is a very curious, but after traveling halfway around the world, I like more and more to shoot from the window of my flat on 7th floor. For example, here’s one more view two month ago:
