Running 2031 km from Yakutsk to Magadan in Far East Russia, the "Kolyma Highway" has a dark past. With untold numbers of Gulag prisoners buried beneath the highway, the " Road of Bones" continues to claim new lives every year. In the coldest part of the inhabited world, the Kolyma's region residents seem to exist in pure defiance — it is this way of life, these people surviving under extreme conditions in the shadow of a gruesome history, that I wish to engage with and portray. The first journey on "Road of Bones" took place in April 2016.
