The Sochi Project: An Atlas of War and Tourism in the Caucasus
May 30–July 10 Aperture Foundation, 547 West 27th Street
The Sochi presented to viewers for the 2014 Winter Olympics was essentially a Potemkin village—a false front built to distract attention from the region's poverty and separatist violence. In this exhibit, photographer Rob Hornstra and writer Arnold van Bruggen show us  the real Caucasus.  Putin would not approve.
