Main / Expeditions / Kolyma 2009

Kolyma 2009

This rather long and productive expedition was organised and held under the order of the Publishing house. Afterwards its materials were used for the publishing of a photo album.  
This time a rather vast territory of the southern branches of the Cherkesky mountain range became an object of exploration. Between the mountain massifs Okhandja, Ulakhan-Chistai, Cherge there are vast valleys with lakes. The largest lakes are Malyk, Momontai and Daprir. They turned to be the main places and objects of the photo session. The largest river here is Omulyovka. It starts from the Okhandja mountains, flows between lakes Momontai and Darpir and then falls into Kolyma.
This expedition had a preliminary stage: almost the whole June I had to live and work in Susuman. The work there included not only photographing of the surrounding landscapes, but also industrial photo session for one of the largest gold-mining enterprises of Kolyma. 
The principal stage of the expedition started early in July. The first large objects were Lakes Maly Darpir and Bolshoy Darpir, as well as the adjacent territory. The work here had been held during two weeks. Then a week was needed for the movement to Lake Momontai. 
There the work had been held for three weeks. Radial trips were held from the lake to the origins of the Zelyony and Zima rivers, as well as Lake Urul’tun. Then within two weeks the movement to Lake Malyk was managed.
The finishing stage of the expedition on Malyk lasted for two and a half weeks. On September,10 I was took out by an off-roader. 
To complete the season I had to spend another two weeks in Susuman and held exceptionally industrial photo session of the objects of one of the local artels. 

In more details you can read about the expedition in the Article “Where the Sky reflects”.
