Bored with the Mainstream

Yuri previously worked as a lawyer in Moscow and rented an apartment near Oktyabrskoye Pole Metro station. He also went to restaurants and visited bars on Fridays. In a word, he led a life similar to that of hundreds of thousands of Moscow office workers. But for the last 5 years, he has been living in the woods near the 106th kilometer of Yaroslavskoye highway, in a place that he calls "meadow 106." Yuri is not a vagrant, and probably not a hermit.

He didn't abandon civilisation. It was just that, one day, he thought that his life was burdened with too many unnecessary things, and that something important was missing. Check out the life of a man, who has grown weary of the excesses of modern life in the gallery.
