BASHMAKH, IRAQ:  Iranian Kurdish smugglers carry their loads from the main road towards the paths that will take them 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
