Project ZATO is a visualization of the memories of residents of closed cities and my own experience of visiting these places, inspired by discussions on web forums, announcements by municipal authorities, and publications on social media sites. The photographs are staged, and the project does not contain any photos that I took myself in the closed cities. The only exceptions are several images of municipal infrastructure that I commissioned from local photographers for the print edition of the project, in order to show how these cities look from the inside.
