Russian Criminal Tattoo Exhibition

There is currently an exhibition on in East London of a series of photographs of Russian prisoners, taken over a more than 50 year period by prison warden Danzig Baldaev. Delving into the cultural crises that have plagued Russians over recent years through the medium of tattoos was something I never expected to see, but the exhibition is worth checking out.

It runs until the 29th November at No. 4 Wilkes Street, Spitalfields. You might want to contact ahead, as the gallery's opening times are subject to constant change (the first time I went it was shut). Admission is free for all.
