Kamchatka. A Story in Foxes
This photo exhibition is dedicated to foxes, the protagonists of an eponymous documentary. Principal photography on the film was completed in autumn of 2022 in the Kronotsky Nature Reserve, one of the most remote places in Russia. Unique photographs depict the life story of a fox family: mating, struggle for survival in the cold season, birthing and upbringing of cubs. Dmytro and Anna Shpilenok, the authors of the film, spent three expeditions in the wild, lasting a total of 26 months, to film an inspiring story about foxes.
In addition, the exhibition features fascinating photographs that will introduce visitors to the diversity of the animal world and the unique nature of Kamchatka.
Kamchatka. A Story in Foxes is an unprecedented project to film the wildlife of Kamchatka Region, which rightly occupies a special place in the country's conservation system.

This is an outdoor exhibition.
