V–A–C Sreda online magazine presents a new three-month programme dedicated to the earth and its variety of meanings, associations and interpretations in culture, art, folklore, and science. In this issue, we present the works of Fyodor Telkov, a documentary photographer and researcher of Ural culture and mythology.

These two photographs from Telkov’s ongoing project dedicated to the North, Between Worlds, were shot in the Polar Urals and in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug. In his research, Telkov captures the situation of indigenous peoples on the borderline between traditional and universal (urban) lifestyles.

One of the key objectives of the project is to show how industrialization and the global world penetrate the spaces of the tundra and taiga, what new forms cultural traditions take, and what people take with them when they change their usual place of residence.
