Kai Donner
Linguist, ethnographer, photographer

Kai Donner (1888‒1935) was a Finnish linguist, etnographer, explorer, author and national activist, who completed two jouneys to Siberia in 1911‒1913 and 1914.

In the field he took several hundred photographs, a selection of which is here made available as high-quality reproductions, conveying the true spirit of his fieldwork – a full century ago.

To accompany the photographic documentation, this volume contains articles devoted to various aspects of Kai Donner’s legacy, with the focus on his role as a specialist in multidisciplinary Siberian studies within the paradigm of Northern Ethnography.
