A great article in the online magazine DivePhotoGuide.com about our leader photographer Viktor Lyagushkin and “his own special corner of the Arctic Ocean, Russia’s White Sea”. The article can be read at the link here
Two huge materials at once: about the world’s first art gallery under the ice, which opened on the White Sea on the basis of the touristic center “Arctic Circle” within the framework of our team’s project “Until the ice melts”.
And a second one is a long article about how the shooting for our project “White Sea Bestiary” took place: about creativity, mysticism and photography in the article by Bogdana Vashchenko for those who know German.
The goal of the “Until the Ice Melts” project, led by our Phototeam.pro team headed by photographer Viktor Lyagushkin, is to draw attention to the problem of climate change and the melting of the Arctic.
Here we have another recognition of the importance of the project: one more publication abroad, in the German magazine GEO Saison for October 2021, a note on the world’s first under-ice gallery “Until the Ice Melts”.
A personal exhibition by Viktor Lyagushkin (Nikon Ambassador, National Geographic photographer, SUBAL Pro Team member and leader of our PHOTOTEAM.PRO) is taking place in the Moskvarium (Moscow, Russia) as part of the Gorizont ecological festival.
The exhibition titled “The White Sea: Man and Nature” presents photographs from the projects “Until the Ice Melts” and “White Sea Bestiary”. Bizarre Arctic animals coexist with humanoid demons. Thus Viktor shows the environmental problems of the northern seas.
The exhibition will run until July 4, 2021, admission is free.
On April 20, 2021, Ambassador Nikon and National Geographic photographer Viktor Lyagushkin took part in a live broadcast of the Nature Photo Team.
Two hours passed quickly. Best of all, the last broadcast describes the comment by the photographer Kirill Uyutnov:
“Viktor lit the air today! He answered all questions regarding the development of a photographer as a photographer directly and firmly, and told what is worth doing and what is not. This is very valuable for those who have been shooting for a long time. So we look forward to seeing Viktor on NPT again! ”

This year 2021, our exhibition and sub-ice gallery “Until the Ice Melts” was closed on April 1. This is a little earlier than planned, but alas! Despite severe winter frosts and thick ice, everything began to melt very quickly. Spring came to the Arctic two weeks earlier than expected. The ice season is closed.
The Thomson Reuters agency picked up the news about our exhibitions “Until the Ice Melts” by Nikon Ambassador photographer Viktor Lyagushkin and “Deep Freeze” by artist Denis Lotarev.
It is indecent to brag, but still. Caption reads: Bogdana Vaschenko / phototeam.pro
The world’s first underwater and under ice art gallery began its work in the White Sea, near the village of Nilmoguba, Loukhsky district of the Republic of Karelia, Russia. And it was opened by us, the PHOTOTEAM.PRO team in cooperation with the touristic center “Arctic Circle”.
The first two expositions of the gallery are: an exhibition of photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin “Until the Ice Melts” and an exhibition of Denis Lotarev “Deep Freeze”, consisting of six oil paintings and two installations.
“Until the ice melts” was under water for the second time, but the art gallery – for the first time. Continue reading →
