On the other side of Aquilon

Some believe that the beginning of the world is in the north, that the dawn of mankind shone in these harsh lands and, supposedly, here you need to look for a mysterious country - Hyperborea, the legendary northern civilization, whose sons emerged from the blood of ancient titans. The Greeks claimed that this people lived "on the other side of Aquilon" - where the north wind is born.

This was my inspiration while I had a short trip along the Kola Peninsula. I was interested in exploring and understanding how a person is mastering the elements while overcoming himself  - stingy nature, harsh climate, proximity of secular Arctic ice, hard work in frozen seas. It is also striking how it was possible to survive in such conditions and defend these cities during the war.
