“Women behind bars”: Special photo report from Zangiota women’s colony

Kun.uz creative team visited the women’s colony in the Zangiota district. We got closely acquainted with the life and work of prisoners there, and conducted interviews with prisoners.

In the penitentiary, which is unique to Uzbekistan, female prisoners are divided into groups based on the crime rate. There are inmates aged between 18 and 70 years (and above). The colony is divided into separate sections: children’s home, center of culture and education, accommodation, meeting rooms, production area where prisoners work. This photo report shows the colonial life at different angles.
