Lake Baikal, in Siberia, is the largest freshwater lake on the planet, by volume. It is also one of the most biodiverse places as it is home to thousands of species of plants and animals, many of which are endemic to the region. In winter temperatures drop to as low as -40C and the entire lake is frozen enabling the locals to cross the lake.
I have been travelling to Lake Baikal for the past 3 years compiling the images that document the beauty of the ice there and the small trees that mark out the road traversing the frozen lake. Photographing this ancient road system was a fascinating experience and I feel my documentation of this unusual and unique way of life is a beautiful human story that also highlights the immense natural beauty of Lake Baikal.
I am very excited to share this story with you.
I have just launched a Fundit campaign to raise the necessary funds to design and print the book.
