Valentin describes himself as an anarchist ecologist. He is a retired officer. Today he lives on his small property in the forest. Even at minus 50 degrees, he sleeps by the fire, outside or in his
small tent. At daytime he patrols through forests, extinguishing forest fires or protecting ant hills. "Where there is a big ant hill, there are no ticks." Krasnoyarsk, Yenisei River, Russia. 2018.
