Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko scaled the length and breadth of the country during his search for the ruins of the once important structures in the remotest parts of the Soviet Union. His two-year-long journey has culminated in a unique collection titled the Restricted Area.

Tkachenko has tried to depict what happens when a nation tries too hard to create a utopian society via by progress in the arena of science and technology.

“I travel in search of places which used to have great importance for the technical progress—and which are now deserted. Those places lost their significance together with the utopian ideology which is now obsolete. Secret cities that cannot be found on maps, forgotten scientific triumphs, abandoned buildings of almost inhuman complexity. The perfect technocratic future that never came.”

Tkachenko’s work will be displayed at the Fotogalerie Friedrichshain in Berlin.

  1. Bulgaria was never a part of the Soviet Union and there is photo of Buzludja or the House-monument of the party (it’s a monument dedicated to the Buzludja congress and not actual headquaters of the communist party), which is located near Kazanlak – a bulgarian town… still – the resume says that the pictures are taken in the “remotest parts of the Soviet Union”… Check your information.
