The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus

January 9 – March 23

/ 2014

Photographer Rob Hornstra and journalist Arnold van Bruggen are documenting the rapidly-changing region around Sochi, a former Soviet resort on the Black Sea, which is preparing to host the 2014 Winter Olympics. The extraordinary photos, together with interviews and films, record a complicated mix of parallel realities as a massive but temporary international event descends and disappears.

Listen to  interviews with Hornstra and van Bruggen on WBUR’s “Here and Now,” and on WBEZ’s “Worldview”
