About the Book
To the uninitiated, it seems as though nothing could survive on northern Russia's forbidding Kola Peninsula. The remote Sami village of Lovozero, however, thrives under the harshest of conditions. In a changing world, the time-honoured practices of reindeer husbandry and traditional agriculture give this spellbinding settlement a unique character.

A passionate photographer, he has travelled widely throughout the UK, Europe and Asia capturing locales as diverse as the windswept St Kilda archipelago, Chernobyl, Transylvania’s verdant woodlands, the vast plains of Siberia, and the thriving cityscapes of Budapest, Zurich, Prague, Cracow, Copenhagen, St Petersburg, Moscow, Ekaterinburg and Beijing to name but a few. He lives in the sleepy seaside town of his birth on England’s north west coast.
