Alex Komarov is a photographer who not only takes photos but also collects and documents Russian and Soviet era cameras some of which in the times of the cold war were used as spy cameras. See http://www.fotoua.com These cameras were long since declassified as tools for covert activities by the Russian authorities. However unknown to Alex there are legacy laws in the Ukraine that made ownership of these now vintage film cameras an offense. Technology has moved on but the laws against ownership have never been repealled in his native Ukraine. As a result Alex has been charged and goes to court on the 17 of December 2013 for owning cameras once used in espionage activities. Alex could end up in prison for having an interest in cameras! One of the cameras that has caused Alex this grief is the Ajax-12 which as it happens is now being sold by the good people from Lomo…
