Photogapher Alexey Vasilyev’s images of the Sakha (a.k.a., Yakutia) area of Siberia are a fascinating look at the locales, people and culture of Russia’s largest region. It’s place of weather extremes and isolated living. Winters are brutally cold (temperatures remain below zero for more over half the year). Summers are apocalyptically hot. Many places are hard to reach, with some areas accessible only via helicopter of plane.
