Don't Call Me Vodka

People are afraid of saying their family names - the atmosphere of slavery and totalitarian power is still empowering.

The assignment took place in the province in the town called Saratov, the aim and the initial proposal of the project was to photograph real people and their everyday struggles. Multiple interviews were conducted with different people coming from different social backgrounds.
