British photographer Bryan Alexander's photographs of indigenous groups living in the remote Siberian Arctic will make you think twice the next time you complain about the cold.

The collection of 40 photographs -- collectively titled 'Whisper of the Stars: Traditional Life in the Arctic -- show indigenous peoples' communities, their traditional camps, transportation and dress as well as activities such as herding, hunting and fishing in the brutally cold area.

One photograph shows the spectacular trails of vapor and ice that are formed when boiling water is thrown into air measuring at -51 degrees Centigrade. Other striking images shows a herd of 1,000 reindeer being driven across the tundra and the Northern Lights dancing over a reindeer herders camp.

Bryan Alexander's photographs were displayed at the Horniman Museum in London, England.
