The theme proposed to photographers for this fourth edition was Chechnya, a country torn by extreme violence and still the theatre of tremendous human misery, even after two decades of murderous conflict.

The Italian photographer Davide Monteleone has chosen to illustrate the threat to Chechen identity concealed beneath the appearance of calm and prosperity adroitly maintained by the autocratic regime of Ramza Kadyrov. He spent the period from December to April 2013 in the country.
