Out of 8 millions people 1 million of Tajiks lives abroad, mainly in Russia and in other former Soviet Union states. This diaspora is also the main income of Tajikistan economy, making over 40% of GDP of the country, which is the poorest of the Former Soviet Republic. In 2016 I photographed numerous families in Tajikistan in where at least a member of the family lives or used to live in Russia for work. I portrait a total of 80 person choosing a BW picture to portrait the person who use to work in Russia or the empty space left in the family from the member currently in Russia.
