Photographer Rob Hornstra roamed the Russian resort of Sochi with a 40-year-old KIEV medium-format camera, which a friend gave him as a gift. When he got, he found that the KIEV’s film transport system was defective.
The Sochi Project’s third Sketchbook depicts Sochi in the summer as well as being an ode to analogue photography.
From the accompanying text: ‘The power of analogue photography is the unpredictability, the imperfection, the setbacks that are initially so frustrating, but ultimately add unexpected dimensions to the images. It is this that gives the work its own identity. Analogue photography thus reflects real life, more than digital photography ever will.’
