Winter Print (2018)

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, the image is no longer reprinted. This offer runs until 31 March 2018. Prints will be shipped in April 2018.

Our book Life here is serious describes the North Caucasus’ most popular national sport, wrestling. Wrestling is not only popular in the North Caucasus, but also in neighboring Abkhazia. These boys train in a room in the cultural centre of Tkuarchal. If they aspire to international competitions, the question remains whether they can ever participate under their own Abkhazian flag. The Olympics authorities have forbidden Abkhazian athletes from competing under their own colors.

“There’s an ongoing crusade against Abkhazia. It’s as if the Cold War mentality still prevails.”
—Viacheslav Chirikba, 2013
