Kalashnikov, 1985
Silver-gelatine print, 1985
Edition 6/30

One of the regular visitors of Studio 50A, Irina Hasanova, took an automatic machine gun from her brother, who was an officer, for a picture that was not intended to see the light. But what will one not do in order to become a model of one’s favorite photographer. Although the atmosphere in the studio contributed to the risk, it was still really dangerous. But after the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan and the subsequent Glasnost, the picture became a cult.
