The Broken Ground, 2019

Olkhon Island is the largest island in Russia’s Lake Baikal, it is almost 80 kilometres long. On this photo, a rocky mass emerges, surrounded by ice in shades of white and blue. Waking up at dawn to capture this moment (we can even see our car!), the broken ground leads our gaze towards a sunrise at -32°C.
