Vyacheslav Korotki, lives on the barents sea, in a century old wooden house that became a meteorological station in 1933, where he was sent by the Russian state to measure and log climatic conditions and then transmit the data via radio to Moscow.

The photographer Evgenia Arbugaeva, who documents Korotkisaid:

“The world of cities is foreign to him. He doesn’t accept it. I came with the idea of a lonely hermit who ran away from the world because of some heavy drama, but it wasn’t true. He doesn’t get lonely at all. He kind of disappears into tundra, into the snowstorms.”
