When Raury released his incredible “God’s Whisper” video and we speculated whether he would be music’s next big sensation earlier this year, admittedly, that might have been a bold question for an artist who has barely cracked 200,000 YouTube hits. However, the 18-year-old Atlanta native is making some serious moves that may just prove us right.

After being handpicked as an opening act for OutKast’s homecoming concert in Atlanta next month (Kid Cudi and Childish Gambino are the other two), it looks like Raury has earned a fan in, well, the biggest tastemaker of them all: Kanye West. According to Complex, Kanye was so inspired by “God’s Whisper” that he recently flew the kid out to kick it and play each other music. Although the two didn’t get a chance to record together, Raury’s rep claims that they “plan to hit the studio very soon.” Does this mean we’ll be hearing Raury on Ye’s upcoming album?

While most people all over the world live in a community with others around them, Russian photographer Danila Tkachenko captures those that choose to turn their backs on this lifestyle. His compelling series Escape documents people who instead live a solitary existence in the wilderness. They make their homes in the Russian and Ukrainian forest and fashion makeshift dwellings from the land.

We see Tkachenko’s subjects appear in different ways throughout the series; some convey a sense of peacefulness as they lay on the trees, while others look gaunt and less at ease. The photographer is sure to show their homes, too, and it’s remarkable to see the different structures that people build and the objects they collect. Surrounded by the lush, green forest, it’s where these individuals have taken refuge from their former lives.

All of these photographs and more are compiled into a book titled Escape, which is available from Peperoni Books.
