about the author

A modern-day nomad, Nicolas Pernot is also a hardened adventurer, photographer, guide and public speaker.
He is an incorrigible traveler for whom true adventure is trying to soak up the atmosphere of the people and places he discovers… even if this means not being able to resist staying amongst these inhabitants and in these parts for many months at a time. Indeed - from 2010 to 2011 - he stayed in Dushanbe, capital of Tajikistan, and more recently, since 2012, he has been based on the banks of Lake Baikal in Siberia. Lake Baikal is also the subject of Nicolas Pernot’s two first books of photographical work that he has presented extensively in conferences in both France and Switzerland.
