A local man outside rows of garages near apartment blocks in the city. The local men of Murmansk have an unlikely passion - they love escaping to their garages, which are often built far away from the apartment blocks where they live, to fix their cars, relax and socialise. A resident explains, 'They call them seashells. I don't know why because they are so ugly and seashells are so pretty.'
