Wilderness of Russia is a unique international photo project, timed to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the country's preserve system. Nature reserves and national parks of Russia preserve biological diversity and pristine landscapes for future generations.
The exhibition presents the vast range of Russian nature from the arid deserts in the south to the Arctic tundra in the north and from the White Sea in the west to the Pacific Ocean in the east. Each protected area is special.
Traveling the world, the exhibition will be displayed in museums, galleries, park visitor centers, and other public spaces.
We are certain that these photographs will inspire you to visit Russia to feel the life-giving energy of pristine forests, crystal clear waters, and the refreshing sea breeze. Witness fire-breathing volcanoes and observe animals in their natural habitat.
One of the goals of the exhibition is to bring your attention to ecotourism opportunities in Russia's protected areas. The more people who see how majestic yet fragile our wilderness is, the more support we can get for implementing international conservation projects and solving common ecological problems.
