Sergei.vasiliev

So here is my first post to follow up my Saatchi blog below… Russian born photographer Sergei Vasiliev took a range of photos between the years of 1989 and 1993 documenting Soviet prisoners and their tattoos, which had a language of their own between the convicts…These tattoos contained coded messages against the Soviet regime and about the prisoners’ individual crimes….for more information on Sergei visit http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/artists/russian_tattoo.htm?section_name=photography
