The Bounded Nature

The series explores the interaction of man and nature in an urban environment. The human demand for vitality allows nature to regain its proper place in the concrete jungle gradually. What’s interesting to observe, is how within the tight bounds circumscribing the allocated areas for existence, the flora always finds an opportunity to prove itself.

Oleksandr Rupeta is a documentary photographer from Ukraine working worldwide. He is mostly interested in social anthropology and social conflict topics, with an emphasis on personality. He carries out short and long-term projects about political, cultural, and social life in Europe, Africa, Middle East, and Asia. The photos appeared in The New York Times, The Financial Times, The Times, The Guardian, The Economist, Nature, Forbes, and others.
