We see a woman selling frozen fish at a night-time market; we see children playing on vast expanses of icy land or abandoned playgrounds; and we see men bathing in the winter sea. All of this is contrasted with images of men at work in the glowing furnaces of metallurgical plants. The photos, taken between 2002 and 2010, cover the vast expanse of Asian Russia, including key cities such as Yekaterinburg, Magnitogorsk and Vladivostok. Maximishin even braved the Oymyakon Valley, in the northeastern corner of Siberia, the coldest inhabited place on the planet. A selection of his photos was published in Siberia: In the Eyes of Russian Photographers, released in late 2013.
