N O W N E S S

Diving much deeper than a visually engaging vintage sci-fi episode, Russian photographer Evgenij Yulkin’s “N O W N E S S” set speaks through the experiences of a gifted child, a protective mother, and a two extraterrestrial visitors to illustrate the complex concepts of prejudice and regret — both ignited and sustained by fear. “This story speaks with many voices,” Yulkin expresses. “Voices of those who exist in a fake world of human hypocrisy and experience all the pain of rejection every day, only because they are different.”

Approaching the apprehensions humans tend to have toward the unknown while addressing the pervasive guilt and fears that limit opportunities for reconciliation and connection is no easy task, but Yulkin’s passion for storytelling and skill with a camera create a compelling message in this set from E.T. touchdown to touching daddy-daughter reunion.
