The Sochi Project Photographs by Rob Hornstra Texts by Arnold van Bruggen
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 have returned repeatedly to this region as committed practitioners of “slow journalism,” establishing a solid foundation of research on and engagement with this small yet incredibly complicated region before it finds itself in the glare of international media attention.
Sochi Autodrom includes two circuit configurations. The temporary circuit leads across the Olympic Park and is only used for the FORMULA 1 race weekends. The smaller, permanent circuit is suitable for race activities all year long – it is planned to hold track days, test drives and other events.
