Mambet

Jeff Foxworthy, eat your heart out: you know you’re a redneck (мамбет, mambet) when you are selling rat poison off-brand zip-lock bags full of asbestos (on the viewer’s left-hand-side of the table, marked “Асбест”) in an outdoor bazaar. This is my favorite picture from Shymkent, and it comes courtesy of my friend Basia Jóźwiak.
