TAJIKISTAN

"It's 25 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, and I'm spending three weeks traveling across Tajikistan to explore the imprint left on the poorest of the former Soviet bloc countries. Here, I meet some of the hundreds of thousands of Tajiks who are believed to be Russian guest workers and who, because of sanctions in Russia and the downfall of the rubble, are returning to their native country. This is part of a new project I’m just starting about the New Great Game in Central Asia”
