Skeleton shrimps caprellas are sitting on a laminaria leaf. They are very funny animals, albeit very small: they grow to a maximum of 5 cm in length. Caprellas are very social: they communicate, eat and fight each other without stop.
One of my best stories about the White Sea is published on the Nikon website. How and under what conditions we have to work, what difficulties an underwater photographer encounters when shooting under the ice. Serious things and oddities in one bottle.
On November 15, there was a presentation of our Сalendar 2020 with photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin in the cafe “Our Circle”. It sounds very formal, but in fact it was a very chamber, almost family event.
Viktor told the guests about underwater animals that inhabit the White Sea, paid special attention to those whose photos were included in the Calendar. Bogdana Vashchenko spoke about climate change in the Russian Arctic and the impact of the change on the lives of animals and people.
“Angel Hunters” – our article with Viktor Lyagushin for the Russian diving magazine “Extreme Depth” about underwater world of the White Sea and the everyday life of the photographer on the Arctic Circle. Lyrics, biology and travel notes.
Our very first project, dedicated to the Orda cave in the Urals, is still of interest to underwater photography professionals. A new publication in English was released ahead of the DEMA Show in the United States in the online magazine DivePhotoGuide.com.
October 4, Moscow hosted the presentation of the sixth issue of Yevgeny Feldman’s slick magazine Svoy, which was completely dedicated to Viktor Lyagushkin’s art. Photos and stories “from caves and seas” on the pages of the new issue, and even more remarkable stories by Viktor during the presentation captivated the audience.

Nikon Ambassador Viktor Lyagushkin talks about the world’s first under ice photo exhibition “Until the Ice Melts”, which had been exhibited under the ice of the White Sea in February-April 2019. How the idea had been born, what difficulties had to be encountered in the process of its implementation, the author says.
Nikon School posted a video in which Viktor Lyagushkin tells about the new AF-S Fisheye Nikkor 8-15 / 3,5-4,5 E ED – those lens which made possible recent White Sea series and the project Until the ice melts.

“This is the best interview in my life,” photographer Viktor Lyagushkin defined the work of Ivan Survillo, one of the brightest stars of modern Russian journalism.
All Russian-language Internet is delighted with these interviews – very long, but so interesting that it is impossible to break away. Ivan asks his interlocutors the most ordinary simple questions: “What do you read?”, “When did you last cry?” and so on, and we see how the personality of the respondents reveals, even through the hard and thick shells of celebrity masks.
According to Viktor, it’s impossible to say that Ivan Survillo somehow emotionally colors the conversation, but you feel very comfortable with him, and you really want to give a sincere answer.
Angel & Devil of the White Sea is the main material of the 15th issue of HEINZ magazine #15. 19 spreads is a record size even for an online edition. Plus cover! Text: Bogdana Vashchenko, photo: Viktor Lyagushkin.
