Awesome photographs by Bryanskaya Oblast, Russia based photographer, Igor Shpilenok. As a former school teacher, Igor grew up and attended the university in the Bryansk region. His skill and art in his photography is bolstered by his profound knowledge of, and love for, the wild landscapes — and their residents — surrounding him. His photographs, used to adorn otherwise bleak bus and railway stations, played an important role in his campaign ten years ago to create this nature reserve.
Today Igor continues to be a major supporter of environmental education, using his photographs and his own writings, published in the local press and a Russian children’s nature magazine, to inspire and teach the general public about nature conservation.
