Sergey says that he is now “not 100% criminal” – he doesn’t want to go back to prison, and, therefore, does “business” – takes money from passing trucks, and from the immigrants who transport drugs.

The number of women is twice as much as men in that area. because of that, all men, including criminals are in the high demand. Nevertheless, the photographer said that he has a lot of respect for these people. “It’s tough to survive in such environment”, he says.
