Danila Tkachenko (Moscow, 1989) explores isolation, destitution, and human identity through his pictures. His work in the field of documentary photography has received considerable acclaim, with a focus on his series "Restricted Areas", that portrays the once era-defining innovations of the Soviet Union in their current abandoned, almost black and white state. "Restricted Areas" earned Tkachenko the first prize in Staged Portraits at the World Press Photo contest, Netherlands (2014), and he was the recipient of the European Publishers Award for Photography (2015).

“"Any progress comes to its end earlier or later and it can happen for different reasons—nuclear war, economic crisis, natural disaster. What’s interesting for me is to witness what remains after the progress has ground to a halt. "” - DANILA TKACHENKO
