Rob Hornstra and Arnold van Bruggen have been working together since 2007 to tell the story of Sochi, Russia, site of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games. They returned repeatedly to this region in the midst of its preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics establishing a solid foundation of research on and engagement with this small yet incredibly complicated place before of international media attention. By 2014 the area around Sochi will have been changed beyond recognition.
Hornstra’s photographic approach combines the best of documentary storytelling with contemporary portraiture, found photographs, and other visual elements collected over the course of their travels.
First released in 2013 and designed by Kummer & Herrman, this new, smaller-sized edition of The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus presents togheter the highlights and key elements of each facet of The Sochi Project, offering alternative perspectives and in-depth reporting on this isolated and incredibly complicated region, between the “true face of Russia” post-Sochi, the conflict in Ukraine, and the brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov.
