Autumn Print (2021)

Every season, Rob Hornstra selects an image from his archive and makes it available as an exclusive handmade C-print (36 x 42 cm / 14.2 x 16.5 in). The number of buyers determines the print run, up to a maximum of 25. Once the season is over or print sold out, the image is no longer reprinted. This offer runs until 31 December 2021. Prints will be shipped in January 2022.

Anzor Ibragimov (12) at a wrestling training in Sovchoz Rodina, a small village near Grozny in the North Caucasian Republic of Chechnya. Wrestling and the North Caucasus are inextricably linked. Not only is wrestling the most popular sport in the region, it is also the birthplace of many Olympic champions. A wrestling coach once explained it to us as follows: “If a boy starts wrestling at seven or eight, he does so as a serious man. It’s not just a game, but a serious fight between two men. Serious because the whole upbringing and education system here is serious. If you’re 14, then you need to be a fighter. You should be aware of that when you watch a wrestling match between two boys.”

“Wrestling is serious because life here is serious.”
—Magomedkhan Magomedovich Magomedkhanov
