Kiliii Yüyan

Photographer

Award-winning photographer Kiliii Yüyan specializes in Arctic photography and has traveled throughout the polar regions to document indigenous cultures and wildlife. On assignment, he has fled collapsing sea ice, chased fin whales in Greenland, and found kinship at the edges of the world. Kiliii has produced four stories for National Geographic about the Alaskan Arctic and Greenland, including a multi-year project on the subsistence whaling culture of the Alaskan Iñuit. He also contributes to The Guardian, Time, and the BBC; and his images have won awards from Photo District News and Communication Arts.
