Rob Hornstra: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus (2nd Ed.)

64,95

This new, smaller-sized edition of The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus presents the capstone volume of this award-winning collaborative project.
From 2009 through 2013, photographer Rob Hornstra and journalist Arnold van Bruggen traveled to Sochi, Russia, and the surrounding Caucasus, returning repeatedly to this isolated and incredibly complicated region in the midst of its preparation for the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Together, the images and texts unpack the complex, multivalent story of this contested region, remaining all the more relevant for the insight they provide into the “true face of Russia” post-Sochi, and following the annexation of the Crimea, the conflict in Ukraine, and the brutal murder of Boris Nemtsov.
Hornstra’s photographic approach combines the best of slow-form documentary storytelling with contemporary portraiture, found photographs, and other visual elements collected over the course of their travels. Van Bruggen contributes a series of engaging stories about the people, the land, and its turbulent history. Designed by Sochi Project collaborators Kummer & Herrman, The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus is a contemporary masterpiece of photography and journalism in the tradition of James Agee and Walker Evans.
