PROJECT: Siberian Summer

„Siberian Summer" - Siberia 2019"

Becker's photographs, taken in the summer months, do not conform to the expectations and stereotypes of Siberia: inhospitable expanses of snow or Soviet-era exile and incarceration. Instead, there are photographs of permafrost cliffs, a close examination of the tundra and its scientific study, and a look at the social and architectural aspekts of Tiksi, including portraits of its people. A strong feeling of melancholia and pensiveness pervades the book. Becker's approach to this landscape is to examine it attentively and thoughtfully.
