Arkhangelsk region is situated in the North of Russia and it has the biggest number of abandoned villages in the country. I went there to find villages with one inhabitant left. These people live alone on the land in which they have grown roots, finding strength and motivation to continue on their way with the help of memories, pets, songs, alcohol. They saw several epochs of Russia and how time changed this country leading their life to oblivion. It seems to me that it is incredibly important to show that there is life in these places with a story behind every door, behind the snow.
