Three years ago, inspired by the idea of documenting remote cultures that are slowly disappearing due to globalization, he began his The World in Faces project. Seeking out small, ethnic minority groups around the world, Khimushin shoots incredible portraits that both honor and immortalize their culture. Over the past 6 months, Khimushin immersed himself in the Siberian landscape, traveling 15,000 miles alone behind the wheel of an SUV to track down, and photograph, the indigenous people of this frozen land. The World in Faces, Siberia is a continuation of photographer Alexander Khimushin's mission to document remote cultures around the world. Sakha Girl. Nivkhi Man. Evenki Elder. Evenki Little Girl.
