Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. In the outskirts of the capital of Kyrgyzstan settlements spawn at a nonstop pace due to internal migration of the country. No work and bad living conditions makes people from remote areas of the country move to Bishkek for a better life. Most find themselves thrown into even worse life conditions than before due to the countrys heavy propiska laws. Propiska was a system developed in the Soviet Union to control migration and movement of people throughout the country. All you civil rights belongs to a given place, normally your birthplace – and if you leave this area all your rights are left behind. This law recides today in Kyrgyz law. This is the story of a family from sourthern Kyrgyzstan who moved to Bishkek 8 years ago and still have no basic rights, no school for the children, no work permits so they are forced to live ontop of the biggest wastedump in the country – here they scavege for plastic and metal which they sell for money.

I am a danish documentary photographer. I am interested in people and their daily life on various places in the world. How does a nomadic tribe go about adjusting to globalwarming, or how does a city once part of Soviet Union cope with the surrounding uranium pollution and unstable economy. These types of questions are my photos about. I give voices to these people and I sell my stories and art to be able to visit more and more places and tell more and more stories. I am a VII Photo masterclass student at the moment working on a project about Vestjylland in Denmark and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia.
