Nikolaus Fuchs

KNOTS is a photographic book in which Nikolaus Fuchs explores the themes of surveillance and cultural primitivism. Through a series of photographs, the reader is invited to take a glimpse into a parallel world inhabited by a group of people in self-imposed exile in the wild, outside of the reach of mass surveillance and social control.
