Arbugaeva work has been exhibited internationally and appeared in the  National Geographic, Le Monde, and The New Yorker magazines, among others.

Evgenia Arbugaeva is my favourite photographer and photojournalist at present. Her photographs are deep routed in her unique and beautiful culture and heritage and natural beauty of the place where she is from; Tiksi in Arctic Russia.

She uses the wide angle in most of her photographs and each of her photographs have this extremely strong narrative. So her photographs are conceptually and subject wise extremely powerful and unique.

She captures the mood of nostalgia, culture, time past and her love for the Tundra.
