Kamchatka is like a time machine. When I arrived to the vast, unscathed wilderness six years ago, it felt as though I had traveled back 300 years. Wilderness still dominates the peninsula today as it did then. I was first drawn here by volcanoes, geysers and brown bears for a three-week photo expedition, but six years since this magical place still has not released its grip on me.
