Summer 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 September 2020. Prints will be shipped in October 2020.

Mikhail Filipovich Frolov, eighty-eight years old, grew up in Minsk and later in Siberian Krasnoyarsk. “I grew up in freezing cold. When I was sent to the Polish front during the Great Patriotic War, I was used to it. Soldiers who grew up in Azerbaijan had a fever more quickly”.

“The trees are more beautiful here than in Siberia.”
—Mikhail Filipovich Frolov, 2009

After being wounded four times during the war, Frolov served in the army until he was 39 years old. He was able to retire thanks to the right connections. “I always dreamed of staying and growing old in Siberia, until I discovered the beauty of Sochi during a stay in a sanatorium.” Frolov has been living permanently in Sochi since the early 1980s.
