"Last 20 years I have been working around the world, each place is very different, but they have something common. Every of these places are protected from different reasons. One is protected by goverment, the other one by military. For example diamonds mines are protected by military against illegal mining. Chernobyl and city of Pripyat is protected and forbidden because of radiation disaster. I hope my work is reflecting those issues, which are still important and actual. And these issues should be still addressed and continued to be worked on."
