Hiding from Baba Yaga


From time immemorial people have sought protection and freedom on the banks of the Yenisei and the adjacent wild taiga. For a long time, the banks of the Yenisei have been pervaded by nomadic peoples. Today, most people are drawn to big cities like Moscow or St Petersburg. Therefore the Yenisei turns more and more into a space for dreamers and loners to escape the worldly world. Encountering all different kind of people, there is a bond which connects them with each other. The seek of freedom, protection, imprisonment and isolation.

Nanna Heitmann (Ulm, Germany, 1994) is a German/Russian documentary photographer. She is based between both countries.
