Confrontation between the police forces and protesters during an anticorruption rally in downtown of Makhachkala, Dagestan. Russian law does not have real power in Dagestan as the justice system is ruled by nepotism. At the same time, the Islamist leaders promote the idea of establishing a "fair society" based on the law of Shari'a, which finds a fertile ground in the republic. Makhachkala, Dagestan, 2011.
Lymar Hotel Stockholm. December 1–February 26
