This exhibition features photographs taken over the last decade of Yhyakh celebrations by Sakha photographer Maxim Unarov. Siberia is usually associated with bitterly cold winters, but in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) in Eastern Siberia, summer is celebrated each year at the solstice with a festival known as Yhyakh. At this festival people make offerings to the spirits, take part in sports contests and horse races, consume ritual foods, and enjoy Sakha song and dances.
