The exhibition of a photographer-documentarian from Yamal Sergey Cherkashin was opened in Dusseldorf. The exposition includes works by the photographer made during the latest several years. Among them there are the best photographs of building of the plant on liquefying of natural gas in the settlement Sabetta, landscapes of the national village Laborovaya from a helicopter, and the unique natural phenomenon – Aurora Borealis (northern lights). Also the exhibition presents the special series of works by the photographer “Autumn in Yamal” made right before the travel to Germany.
As Sergey Cherkashin says, reporting is his favorite genre. He likes to take pictures of events and people in their everyday life and also natural phenomena. Of course, there are not many pictures on the exhibition to show the whole beauty and uniqueness of Yamal. Vastness and primordial nature of the severe arctic region are amazing. They can be photographed endlessly.
The photographer from Yamal Sergey Cherkashin started photographing since his student years. Exactly in Yamal he became a real photographer: he came to the regional public and political newspaper “Krasniy Sever” and worked there during 13 years. Three times he received the title “The photo-correspondent of the year” in Yamal, as the press-service of the governor of Yamal informs.
