In June of 2014, I found myself trapped in Provideniya, Russia, a shadow of a former city on the eastern edge of Siberia. Director Niobe Thompson and I had finally managed to finish shooting the final sequence for the CBC documentary series “The Great Human Odyssey”, and were happy to be heading home.
See the following link for the behind-the-scenes video from this shoot :
Unfortunately, the weather turned bad, and our charter plane from Nome, Alaska was unable to fly in until the skies cleared. Over the next several days, I explored the former military port, and captured images of a few of the many abandoned factories, and decaying memories of a failed Soviet Empire.
