Ethereal Creatures Living Under Arctic Ice

See the Amazing, Ethereal Creatures Living Under Arctic Ice is the title of a story which is now live on National Geographic site. It features Viktor Lyagushkin’s photos and text includes my answers and captions.

Viktor is proud to have his work being so highly estimated and I am happy that my captions have been preserved almost in its original form, with only minor editing.

Thank you, Sarah Stocke, for good questions and thoughtful work!

Two Worlds Photo is a Winner of National Geographic Your Shot

Our recent photos from the White Sea march across the planet. In the spring of 2018 in the Touristic Center Polar Circle. Photographer is Viktor Lyagushkin, of course. And my contribution was to obediently hang under the ice hole.

July 20, 2018, this photo was chosen as a winner of Your Shot Daily Dozen by National Geographic, and three days later in the Instagram it has 40 000 likes!

Discovery with almost a million followers immediately re-posted this photo … I’m afraid to imagine what will happen next.

Big story in National Geographic Georgia Magazine by me, Bogdana Vashchenko, illustrated with photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin, about Vashlovani National Reserve, our of the oldest National Reserves in Georgia. It’s an honour for us to be published in the festive issue of the Magazine, dedicated to its 5-th Anniversary.

Working on the story I was so impressed how it had been possible for all sides to Mind-Meld: the government, non-state organization NACRES, and shepherds.

Here in Vashlovani it is easy to see how strongly tied humans and nature.

Presentation of May 17 Issue National Geographic (Georgia) Magazine

новый номер NG ГрузияOn April 29, Vitya Lyagushkin and I had the honor to attend the presentation of the May (2017) issue of National Geographic (Georgia) Magazine, as well as the premiere screening of the film The Genius about Albert Einstein, to which the issue of the magazine is also dedicated. To our regret, we understood little from the movie, since it was in Georgian, but appreciated the excellent work of the magazine team and the high level of organization of the event.

The presentation had been held in the inner courtyard of the National Museum of Georgia. The wine was magnificent, the buffet was wonderful, the atmosphere was friendly.

Dear new National Geographic (Georgia) Editor-in-Chief Natia Khuluzauri, thank you for inviting us, it was a big pleasure to be there!

Feature includes interview with Viktor and his photographs of Orda Cave and Blue Lake (Russia).
