“Running 2031 km from Yakutsk to Magadan in Far East Russia, the ‘Kolyma Highway’ has a dark past. With untold numbers of Gulag prisoners buried beneath the highway, the ‘Road of Bones’ continues to claim new lives every year. In the coldest part of the inhabited world, the Kolyma region’s residents seem to exist in pure defiance – it is this way of life, these people surviving under extreme conditions in the shadow of a gruesome history, that I wish to engage with and portray.”
– Jacob Aue Sobol
