Russian miner spends his breaks capturing breathtaking photos of foxes in the arctic circle

Everyone needs a hobby that would keep our minds healthy and creative. A miner from Russia, Ivan Kislov has found a perfect hobby that brings joy to his life. The Russian miner finds refuge during his break in the remote landscape of the Chukotka region of North-East Russia. Ivan basks in the glory of the seemingly inhabitable Tundra which has its own share of beauty despite its unfavorable living conditions.

Ivan is a gifted photographer whose hobby includes taking pictures of majestic arctic foxes dwelling in Chukotka. After his duty as a mining engineer is done, Ivan spends the rest of his time exploring the landscape of Chukotka to have an intimate experience of its stunning wildlife.

From bears to reindeers and wolves to stoats, Ivan never fails to immortalize these magnificent beasts in photographs. But among the creatures that can be found in Chukotka, foxes take the top of his list!

The reason behind Ivan’s passionate fascination to foxes is because he believes that they are the most cooperative animals in the world of photography. Unlike common beasts who tend to shy away from the camera, foxes are known to come closer- giving photographers opportunity to take their photos in all possible angles.

“Foxes are curious and can come very close, and I shoot with wide angle and telephoto lenses.” Ivan Kislov shared in one of his interviews.
