A Meditative Photo Series About Hermits And Their Woodland Homes

There are many reasons why someone would choose to turn their back on the city and start a new life in the wilds, and yet very few people actually see the move as a feasible option.

Noise, neighbors, pollution, high rent prices and an overwhelming desire to get in touch with nature are all popular reasons for leaving life in the urban jungle behind, but those who actually make the transition are immediately labeled as hermits.

Photographer Danila Tkachenko spent some time with those who dwell in woodland homes far removed from human society, and her intimate portraits reveal the quaint, and often kooky, way of life chosen by these modern day hermits.

There’s a compelling story being told by the photographs in Danila's revealing series Escape- a tale of solitary sadness, survival, and the effects of spending too much time alone with your thoughts.
