A Canadian photographer is confronting Russians with images of women murderers, at an exhibition in the far eastern city of Khabarovsk.
Olga Shagautdinova, from Montreal, visited a women’s prison camp in the village of Zaozyornoye, in the Khabarovsk region, and took about 1,000 pictures. She selected just 17 for her project.
They all show women convicted under Article 105 of the Russian penal code: premeditated murder.
