The Coldest Village in the World

Deep in the Siberian tundra, the village of Oymyakon is widely considered to be the coldest inhabited place on Earth with an average winter temperature of −50 °C (−58 °F). New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple embarked on a two-day journey from Yakutsk, the coldest major city in the world, to the village in order to document what it’s like living in an area so frigid that people risk frostbite after only a few minutes outside.
