Behind The Polar Circle by Aleksey Sokolenko

When I was a kid, I had a book with a little story about a family of lemmings living in Lapland. Instead of illustrations, there were pictures of the tundra. Since then, the northern landscapes have always been in my mind... Luckily, one day I saw them with my own eyes. It was love at first sight.

Now every winter I pack my bags and go to the north. The dearest to my heart place is located beyond the Arctic Circle. Among them, there are the Khibiny Mountains, the Barents Sea, and a lot of places in the wild tundra.

The aim of these annual trips is to take unique pictures of northern nature. In the north, sunrises and sunsets in winter and early spring are very long. It allows me to "catch the light" and spend hours taking beautiful photographs.

This collection is dedicated to the place I adore. It's about the incredible north! Each piece will tell you its own little story. I hope my pictures will inspire many people to visit them.
