The Hollow Hills festival was a huge musical and cultural event organized fully by volunteers. It started in the early 2000's as a sort of camping party for friends, and later became one of the most important independent open-air festival for all kinds of creative activity — from animation to music.
I discovered it in 2010 and loved it because of its extraordinary atmosphere. I noticed how the tissue of reality got thinner there and some other worlds became visible. Trying to document it was really a pleasure. Unfortunately, the festival was closed by the organizers in 2012 because it became too popular.
Young people used to go there to escape the routine. Obviously suppressed by reality, being malcontent with that, they always search for some way out. This festival was that kind of place — where some different rules were in force.
My series is not about a musical event, but about those who try to "break on through".

Look past the protestors, past the policeman, past the bullhorns—what lies at the heart of Baltimore's (and America's) unrest runs much deeper than a single violent incident.
"When two galaxies collide, night becomes day and gates reveal a parallel world..." Brilliantly photographed, these pictures draw us into a mysterious and fascinating universe, mixing interstellar mysteries with our everyday city streets.
Colombia is blessed with a lush landscape, countless indigenous cultures, the world's largest reserves of emeralds—and yet as these hard-hitting photographs show, much of this paradise has been turned into a living hell.
