Keeping warm by going through Elena Chernyshova's photos of the arctic city of Norilsk, which is in darkness for 45 days a year.

@neauoire btw if I'm not mistaken Norilsk is one of the most remote towns in the world (and the less fun to live in, judging by the photos)

@kouett @neauoire According to Wikipedia, it’s also one of the most polluted city in the Russian Federation.

@Sylvhem @kouett @neauoire

also, there's no road connecting it to the rest of the country. everything in the city belongs to the mining company. workers come there because of high wages, and subsequently cannot leave due to the high cost of living / leaving. it's also basically impossible to get there unless you work for the company, and it's illegal for foreigners without a special permit.


@guenther It's disturbing that we've created something on this planet that is more dystopian than a lot of dystopian fiction.
