  • Ulan Bator, Mongolia. 27/03/2011. A view of Ulan Bator over the shoulder of a slumbering drunk. Alcoholism is a huge problem in the city, home to almost half of Mongolia's people. The capital's population has doubled in the past twenty years, expanding outward in a haphazard sprawl, and many inhabitants live in slums known as the "Gher district." High levels of unemployment and poverty await herders who abandon rural areas and arrive in the city, they are untrained in any skills necessary for urban jobs. Only in 2010, during one of the harsher Dzuds, more than 8 million sheep, cows, horses and camels died in Mongolia so around 20.000  herdsmen had no choice but to migrate towards Ulan Bator. [I spent many days waiting for something to happen on this hill, which I judged having the best point of view on the Gher district. It wasn't the first drunk I photographed at Ulan Bator, where alcoholism is a big social plague. When this man laid down on the ground, I took some photos].
