Escape by Danila Tkachenko
Alexander Zaxarov
Jun 9, 2020

Danila Tkachenko is a young yet renowned Russian visual artist, focused on documentary photography.

Despite growing up in the middle of the big city, Danila has always been drawn to the wildlife. He considered it as an escape from the accelerating world, some place where he could hide and feel free. As he says: ‘I am concerned about the issue of internal freedom in the modern society: how feasible it is, when you’re surrounded by a social framework all the time?’

Drowned by this idea, the artist created photographic series, titled Escape. It consists of the pictures documenting the life of the men who literally, escaped from modern civilisation and decided to live insulated, surrounded by lush nature. The figures of Danila’s project consciously agreed to lose their social identity in favor of being autonomy and self-sufficient. Through this series, the artist investigates if ‘one can break free from social dependence and get away from the public to the subjective - and thus, to make a step towards oneself.’
