Contemporary Russian artist and documentary photographer Danila Tkachenko brings a new landscape of the former Soviet Union through his photographs of unfinished and restricted areas, all once deemed significant by the Union.
The places in Tkachenko’s “Restricted Areas”, along with its utopian ideology and endeavors, have become obselete by the end of the 20th century.
The multiple award-winning photographic series Restricted Areas by Tkachenko can be currently viewed at the Fotogalerie Friedrichshain in Berlin.
The exhibition will run through Oct. 29.
