BASHMAKH, IRAQ: Iranian Kurdish smugglers warm themselves by a fire before carrying alcohol by foot into Iran...Iranian Kurdish smugglers traffic petrol from Iran into Iraq and alcohol from Iraq into Iran.  On foot, a smuggler can look to make around $10 per trip whereas with a horse a smuggler can make $100.  The routes are very dangerous with the risk of stepping on land mines or  being shot by the Iranian military..Photo by Kamaran Najm/Metrography
