A photographer that enjoys the “road less travelled”, Alexander Khimushin spent six months travelling Siberia to photograph its indigenous people. His adventures started a little over nine years ago when he was bitten by the travel bug; packing his bags to pursue his dream of seeing the world. Having visited 84 countries so far, the tireless photographer realised that meeting people was the best part of his travels.

To celebrate this, he started his photo project “The World In Faces” as a way to celebrate the “beauty and diversity” the world had to offer through the portraits of ordinary people. More importantly, he wanted to photograph people that lived in remote places, to capture the culture and traditions that still thrived there. For the past six months, he has found himself in one of the most remote places in the world – Siberia.

During his almost year long journey, he covered 25, 000 kilometres to meet some unique and interesting people. His travels took him as far as the coast of the Japan Sea and included one of the coldest places on earth – Yakutia. He only had one mission: “to capture faces and traditions of various groups of indigenous people living there.”

“While some of the ethnic groups are dominant in their regions, many others are on the edge of disappearance, with a total population as low as only a hundred people left. They remain largely unknown to the outside world.”

Here are a few of his photographs:
