Woman at the end of the Land – Deep into Arctic Siberia
Alegra Ally is an Ethnographer, and an award winning photographer, whose work has focused on worldwide indigenous cultures. Ally is the founder of the Wild Born Project, which focuses on Ecological knowledge, indigenous women, cultural and climate changes. In her recent Flag Expedition Ally travelled to the Yamal Peninsula, Siberia which in the indigenous Nenets language means the end of the land, with an express purpose: to join a small group of Nenets herders in the Arctic Circle and participate in their winter migration. In this frigid environment Ally accompanied a pregnant Nenets woman during her ninth month of pregnancy, and embedded herself into the entire process of childbirth preparation, while exploring questions of cultural change and climate change. The images of Women at the End of the Land, unveil a rare visual documentation of a vanishing way of life —testimony to the unique life, rough and fascinating, it follows one nomadic family in their yearly winter migration across the Arctic tundra, whose survival at the End of the Land defies all odds.
Tasman and Antarctica: the unknown story
Shining a light on the lesser known anecdotes from both expeditions – the extreme highs and lows, the successes and the failures along the way.

Constantly pushing the boundaries of human endurance he has undertaken a number of large scale expeditions over the past 14 years. On the 26th January 2012, he and long time friend, James Castrission made history by completing the longest unsupported polar expedition of all time. Four years earlier he Crossed the Ditch from Australia to New Zealand paddling 3318km without assistance across the Tasman Sea for another world first.
