Camper and photographer Oleg Grigoriev, aged 35, has captured a series of breathtaking mountain views from the inside of his tent, with only his feet sticking out of the flap.

A veteran traveller, the Russian outdoorsman travels with little more than a tent and a camera, snapping photos of the mountainous terrain of Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

Though Grigoriev is a lawyer by trade, he’s been camping in remote mountain regions since 2007. However, only after a memorable trip to the Fann Mountains of Tajikistan did he come up with the idea of photographing views from inside his tent.

He was in fact the first Russian to reach the snow-covered 5489m Chimtarga peak, the Fann Mountains’ highest point.

Usually travelling in a group of 10-15 people, Oleg has pitched his tent in the mountains of the Caucasus in Russia and the Carpathians in Ukraine, and on Mount Kazbek in Georgia.

’I like to travel to remote places where there is no hotel or hostel, so I take a tent with me to the mountains to sleep in,’ he said.

’For me it’s a very emotive experience, which I try to express in my photos,’ he explained.
