Provideniya is a shadow of a former city on the eastern edge of Siberia in Russia.

In June of 2014, aAron explored the former military port, and captured these images of abandoned factories and decaying memories of a failed Soviet Empire. He found himself in this remote location after he and Director Niobe Thompson had finished shooting the grueling final sequence for the CBC documentary series “The Great Human Odyssey”, and were forced to wait for the skies to clear before their charter plane from Nome, Alaska could bring them home.
