C-print 1, 23.5 x 28.7 cm, signed, Edition of 25 - Hamzad Ivloev, Nazran, Ingushetia, 2012
Hamzad Ivloev, 44, was a policeman in Karabulak. One night he discovered a booby trap. At that moment reinforcements arrived. Hamzad started screaming and telling them to run away. But no one responded. He decided to throw himself on the grenade. “In retrospect, it was all for nothing. I sacrificed myself for a bunch of cowards”, he says bitterly.
C-print 2, 23.5 x 28.7 cm, signed, Edition of 25 - Elena, Sochi, Russia, 2012
Elena, thirty-one, has been a dancer at Art Klub, the strip club on the first floor of the monstrous Hotel Zhemchuzhina, for eighteen months. Loud music, sweaty bodies on the pebble beach, and striptease are perhaps more at home in Sochi than the sporting spectacles of the Winter Olympics. The coming years will prove what survives of both.
