Children of the Tundra

Nenet children pose for a photo in rural Russia. The Nenet people are indigenous nomads who live near the Arctic. Your Shot photographer Kamil Nureev says that every year, the Nenet children go away to boarding schools, "and every time they dream they will come back home." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram. Follow us on Instagram at @natgeoyourshot or visit us at for the latest submissions and news about the community.
