A herd of semi-wild Altaï horses, belonging to Old Believers, run through the snowy fields near Bolshoi Kunaley village. Old Believers, who are an offshoot of the Russian Orthodox church, mostly live in extremely isolated communities to which they fled centuries ago to avoid persecution.

Matthieu Paley

Matthieu Paley was born in France, spent three years studying photography in New York and has led a peripatetic life for much of the past twelve years in the highest and remotest regions of Asia. He is regarded as possibly the finest young explorer-photographer working today in Asia, and since 2012 has worked on several major National Geographic assignments

 

Paley’s photographs are awe-inspiring. His work is not easily acquired and few people ever visit the regions which he has made his second home. Frequently, he visits these beautiful but inhospitable regions in the depths of winter when temperatures drop to -30°c. For Paley this provides the best light and working conditions to shoot his ethereal and awe inspiring photographs.
