Apparently, Sochi has been doing quite well as a hospitable host of 2014 Winter Olympics, if there is need in exposing its 'another side'.
Kuturgan: Why not to show todays Sochi? It is not the same city as it was 5 years ago.
Actually, those 12 photos show very little of Sochi even 5 years ago, be it worst or best side. Very weak selection. But leaving some... 'aftertaste'. Coincidence?
reginalddwight: I find nothing wrong with the Sochi photos in general. However, what is oddly distressing to me is the 2nd one, showcasing a 77 year-old Russian man sporting a captain's hat and a bikini brief.
From the original Sochi Project link below those odd 12 pictures: 'On the small private beach, at the bottom of a steep staircase where our putyovkas are checked, we meet Viktor Alexeyevich. A retired shipbuilder from Murmansk, he has happily made use of the gratis opportunity to relax in Sochi for years'.
Similar picture from there is titled 'Viktor Alexeevich on the private beach of sanatorium Metallurg. Sotsji, 2009'.
Oh, in Russia men used to wear 'bikini briefs' without any extra message.
Artpt: @ 1drey, I read your link and saw the Pussy Riot documentary....she is committed and they cannot kill her for fear of martyrdom...keep the posts coming with updates...there are many causes and few interested.
please keep posting about photography, not about Russian or American crimes. There are enough dedicated places for those.
