Previously featured in Thisispaper Céline Clanetinvites us to discover a secret place — the Kola Peninsula (Russia) also known as Murmansk Oblast, or Russian Lapland.
Words: Thisispaper, Céline Clane
Photography: Céline Clane

The project is an outcome of Céline’s five-year exploration of the land located at the northwesternmost point of Russia, bordered by the Barents Sea and the White Sea. The photographer was curiously observing this harsh land, where the two-month dark winter and year-long polar weather. Nevertheless, from this seemingly miserable picture, beautiful and sensual visual story emerges.

„Partly inaccessible, either due to lack of infrastructure, military prohibitions or barrier of language, the secretive Peninsula nevertheless conceded to me the following images. I sank into the landscapes of this mysterious land, like a foot into a snow whose depth would not be known,” Céline describes the project with poetic words.
