Vlad Sokhin

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea

A polaroid image of a man standing beside a public bus in Port Moresby, a city where half of the female population is exposed to domestic and street violence. Rape, theft, armed robbery and carjacking are also problems in and around the city. In its brothels, teenage girls sell their bodies, having been sent there by their fathers and brothers. Raskol gangs operate in the settlements, raping and killing, but many of their crimes are never reported to the police. Even during the day, drunken men can be seen beating their 'meri': wives, daughters and even mothers. And at night... At night it is better not to leave your fortress with its high wire fence. The city may misinterpret and fail to forgive such unreasonable courage.
Photographer Vlad Sokhin says: 'With words and Polaroid images I kept a record of my thoughts and impressions, writing down dialogues with victims and perpetrators, and otherwise capturing the moments and events that surrounded me every day'.
