Elena Chernyshova - Days of Night - Nights of Day (2012-13)

Artist’s statement: 

Days of Night - Nights of Day is about the daily life of the inhabitants of Norilsk, a mining city northernmost of the polar circle with a population of more than 170,000. 

The city, its mines and metallurgical factories were constructed by prisoners of the Gulag. With 60% of the present population involved in the industrial process, this documentary aims to investigate human adaptation to extreme climate, ecological disaster and isolation.

Norilsk is the 7th most polluted city in the world. The average temperature is -10C, reaching lows of -55C in winter, when for two months the city is plunged into polar night. The living conditions of the people of Norilsk are unique, making their plight incomparable.”

From the Marlene Dietrich files: A purple shiny suit with no shirt underneath, vampy birdcage with feather accents, roller set curls and a fancy skinny cigarette holder. 
Not bad for a Monday look, I suppose.
