Winter 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 March 2021. Prints will be shipped in April 2021.

Together with Dutch journalist Jelle Brandt Corstius and a dramatic hangover I stroll through a typical huge Soviet city park called Zelyony Ostrov (Green Island). We are in Cherkessk, the capital of the North Caucasian republic of Karachay-Cherkessia. Although it is summery and hot as hell, most attractions are out of service. Undoubtedly this has something to do with the technical state they are in.

“Even for a small nation, the history of the Karachays is not very cheerful.”
—Jelle Brandt Corstius, 2008*

In 2008 I travelled to Karachay-Cherkessia together with Jelle Brandt Corstius in order to understand more about small peoples with exotic names like the Karachays, the Cherkess, the Abazins, the Nogais and here and there some Kumyks. The latter live mainly in Dagestan, however they share the same incomprehensible language as the Karachays.

De quote van Jelle Brandt Corstius is afkomstig uit zijn boek Kleine landjes.
