Koryak children standing beside a cooking fire in the village of Tymlat, in the Russian Far East. Tymlat is on the Russian Pacific coast, in the northern part of the Kamchatka Peninsula. The Koryak people are indigenous to this area. On the coast they are fishers, while inland they are reindeer herders. The terrain is Arctic tundra, and temperatures in winter plummet well below freezing. Photographed in February 2006.
