In just a few years, he has amassed 190K+ followers on Instagram, raising awareness of not only his incredible skill with an iPhone, but also the plight of his subjects.

Russian photographer and charity volunteer Markov hopes to use his winnings to spotlight the plight of orphaned children in his native country.

“This grant will enable me to capture more stories and expand the project’s geography,” he tells TIME.

According to Markov, he created an Instagram account two years ago and it became his favorite project. He has about 30 thousand subscribers. There, he publishes pictures of Russia’s rural cities and its residents. His images are the reflection of harsh realism of average people lives.
