Russia. Arkhangelsk region, 2008-2011
Kenozero is the name of an area in the North of Russia lost among forests and awful roads. Several ordinary villages are spread near the lake of the same name. Most are abandoned now, and nothing extraordinary is happening there. People live their daily lives, they got used to unemployment and bad social conditions long ago. But man cannot live without hoping for the best. Most of us prefer to go with the flow and dream of a better life. So do people in Kenozero.
