Moscow, Russia. 1992
A young Muscovite wipes clean a cabdriverís windshield in order to earn some pocket change. The cityís streets are suddenly full of children, hawking newspapers and soft drinks - or converging on cars with spray bottles in hand. Drivers weary of thieves remove their wiper blades, reinserting them only in heavy rain.
A man stands guard while his partners sell shots of homemade wine to snow-flecked Muscovites in Krasnopresnenskaya Square. Moonshiners such as these from the fertile Caucasus - four days by car from Moscow, are free to travel and run their small businesses, but face increased ethnic prejudices.
