Rare Vintage Photos Of Dwellers Of The Russian North Over A Century Ago

The author of this unique photo collection is a Russian photo artist Nikolay A. Shabunin (1866-1907) who dedicated all his life to the ethnography of his native region – the Mezen country and its outskirts. h/t: englishrussia

Nikolay was obsessed by the Russian north, he saw how age-old traditions receded into the past and he wanted to capture the life of those people who could be called “the children of nature” – their mode of life didn’t change for centuries.
