Says Adam: Deserted village is a story about animals that are no longer natural in the nature, are becoming less and less common in the countryside and do not have their future in our cities. Their fates show the transformation that takes place on our farm, in the whole village and in our minds. I grew up on a farm with this animals. Most of them are no longer alive and I wanted to tell their stories. Some of these animals I actually photographed in places where they stuck. The rest was reassembled from my old, family photograph album.
