About Restricted Areas
Winner of the 2015 European Publishers Award For Photography. This project is about the human impulse towards utopia, about our striving for perfection through technological progress. "I traveled in search of places which used to hold great importance for the idea of technological progress. These places are now deserted. They have lost their significance, along with their utopian ideology which is now obsolete. Many of these places were once secret cities, that did not even appear on any maps or public records. Any progress comes to its end earlier or later, what's interesting for me is to witness what remains after." (Danila Tkachenko)
