A snowy tundra might seem harsh and desolate, but when you glimpse the photography of Ivan Kislov, you'll quickly realize how the Arctic teems with wildlife.

Working as a mining engineer in the remote Chukotka region of Russia, Kislov uses photography as a way to relax on breaks. He's become especially fond of photographing foxes, animals that are naturally curious and have no qualms about getting up-close and personal with a camera shutter.
