The Broken Empire
Trans-Siberian Railroad
Svishchevo, Russia. 1997
Since the Trans-Siberian Railroad does not stop in the tiny central Siberian village of Svishchevo, locals like Vladimir Maltsev rely on horse-drawn sleighs to get around.
Petrovsky Zavod, Russia. 1997 
Babushkas load baby carriages with pans of home-cooked food and garden produce to sell to travelers of the Trans-Siberian Railway at Petrovsky Zavod. As many struggle to supplement government pensions worth only about $60 a month, food that is not sold will have to serve as a meal at their homes.
