Espresso Logo By Adam Bisby of Espresso | Slide 1 of 14: There’s cold, and then there’s Oymyakon cold. Temperatures in the world’s coldest permanently inhabited place have dropped below -71 Celsius, with average January temperatures sitting at around -50 C. Photographer Amos Chapple travelled to this frigid village on the Siberian tundra to document what life is like for the 500 hardy souls who live there, and after defrosting his camera was able to capture some incredible images.
