This project is a result of visiting some of the deserted forests and forgotten areas of Moscow. These islands of nature turned out to be my private spaces, places of calm and tranquility. The images presented here demonstrate my intention to show influence of natural objects on each other, their mutual interdependence. Ground, leaves, tree trunks and roots form complex and entwined structures. A closer look at such structures reveals order and unity in nature.
