10.12.2020 - 28.2.2021 Siberia is shrouded in mystery as is the origin of its name. It is a vast territory where political prisoners and scientists, who receive Nobel Prizes for their discoveries, live in extreme conditions. It is an expanse of land where turbulent history meets the breathtaking beauty of nature, fragility of civilization, and people who steer clear of the ones and zeros of the online world. Martin Wágner, a documentary photographer who does not measure the stages in his life with calendars or schools, but with journeys, has visited Siberia countless times and taken more than forty thousand photos
