Spring Print (2020)

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 30 June 2020. Prints will be shipped in July 2020.

“I took this photo of schoolchildren after lunch during our first visit to Krasny Vostok in 2009. It is one of the last pictures before we were evicted from the village. While it seemed to be a promising day. After an extensive tour by a talkative WWII veteran in the museum in the local school we were told that the harvest festival was about to start. Around us children were running around dressed as cucumbers, onions and carrots.

Until a typical math teacher - colouring glasses and sweat stains under the armpits - angrily stamps at the principal and swears that we foreigners are not allowed to be in the school building.

The principal calls the mayor, the mayor calls local authorities, local authorities call Moscow and the final answer is always: Get out! And thus a positive story about the difficult resurrection of an energetic village with cheerful children changed again into a story about Russian paranoia and xenophobia.”
