Ice Fishers

Aleksey Kondratyev's 2017 photography series Ice Fishers is a visual study of makeshift shelters used by Kazakh fishers as they fish along the frozen Ishim River.

North-Central Kazakhstan is one of the coldest populated regions on Earth, yet many fishermen use nothing more than trash bags and salvaged plastic to protectthemselves from subzero temperatures and biting winds. 

Despite this harsh environment, Kondratyev’s photographs reveal the beauty of these improvised structures, drawing attention to the material and shape of each functional sculpture as it floats within an endless expanse of white.
