Chrystèle flought back to Paris while I was taking the train for Vladivostok… A good opportunity to wrap up in images what has been your hero’s daily life in Russia.
Happy to leave Paris, happy to reach whatever destination
Above on the right side: arrival to Novosibirsk.
Sticking to my mission, I’ve shoot photographs in every situation, in any position.
Above: On the Olkhon Island
And to take good photographs, we sometimes had to go far, and to wait long…
Above: waiting for Godot, the bus that would bring us back from perm 36.
… Or to settle in Far Far East villages:
… We also had to look at maps (Abalak), read Dostoyevsky’ books (Tobolsk), organize revenge when needed (in the train, with two awful ladies who had made our night difficult. A stroke back, preparing small and dry pieces of bred which I put under their sheets… hahaha. Or freezing, here in Ulan Ude).
Though we also had to deal with more casual activities. Here from left to right:
Bringing laundry to a real hotel, making hot tea for the long day to come, preparing travel expenses report…
… Which explains that heroes could get tired – Here in the bus on the Olkhon Island and then in Ulan Ude, coming back from a freezing expedition to a monastery.
… Or that even we could get sick. Here the two of us on the Olkhon island trying to unblock our nose and lungs…
Of course, in our story, things will always end well…
Sometimes it even ends with a song !
Hereunder, please share our joy when we finally got our bus back from Perm 36!!!
