The Sochi Project
J Thoendell stashed this in Winter Olympics
As the Olympics kick off, it's impossible to ignore the socio-political context. But in addition to the athletes, and the questions about Russian policy, there are also the people of Sochi. In 2007, after hearing that "the Florida of Russia" had been awarded the winter games, Dutch photographer Rob Hornstra and writer/videographerArnold van Bruggen traveled to Sochi to begin documenting life in the resort town as it prepared for the 2014 games. The result is the multimedia reporting site "The Sochi Project"
Thanks! I now know more of this Sochi :)
I can't imagine having a Winter Olympics in a place like Florida.
