Each week, we’re showcasing the work of a photographer who caught our eye with their striking images and inspirational focus. This week’s #LensCultureDiscovery is Alexis Pazoumian (@alexis_pazoumian), who’s sharing some images from his new series “Sacha.” In this project, the photographer documents a man named Sacha who lives in the Tundra, Arctic region of Yakutia, where the weather in unbearable. During the winter months, the temperatures drop to -65°C. On a quest for freedom and independence, Sacha raises his herd of 1000 reindeer there. He lives in the Tundra the majority of the year, looking after the herd. The lack of roads makes getting around very complicated. Living in such conditions means a constant fight with the elements and with yourself. He gets by on his own by virtue of his environment, which is slowly transforming before his eyes due to climate change. Sacha is attached to this way of life, but he appears to be one of the last representatives of an endangered world. The grueling life in the high north has him asking himself the toughest question ever: how do you know who you really are? Stay tuned for more images from this moving story all week, and be sure to share your own work with us by using #LensCultureDiscovery! - The daily life of the hunters is evolving because of climate change. The increasing temperature of the air and water makes the superior part of the ground melt faster. Nomadic herders don’t know the numbers exactly, but are the first ones to observe the environmental changes. - Image: © Alexis Pazoumian - #alexispazoumian#sacha#documentaryphotography#yakutia#yakutsk#photojournalist#personalstories#photojournalism#portrait#photodocumentary#photostory
