“On The Other Side Of The Mountains” is a very smartly produced, and won rightly the Dutch Canon Prijs for innovative journalism 2010 and also received an honorable mention in the Magnum Expression Award 2010. It was especially developed for the European Month of Photography, and is a multi-functional newspaper-cum-Do-It-Yourself exhibition for your home.
For all supporters of the Sochi Project you can see a detailed making of in the Sketchbook section on their site. But for all of you who aren’t supporting the project yet, you can see a part of the making of on the AHORNMAGAZINE website, which I think is highly interesting.

“On The Other Side Of The Mountains” is a story about Krasny Vostok, a village with one foot in the 19th century, still partially without gas and electricity. Barely 200 kilometres from Sochi, but a world away. There is no reason to portray this village; and that’s why they did. The Caucasus is more than just conflict and refugees, fundamentalist Islam or billion dollar Games.
Like all other publications of The Sochi Project, you can see the full multi-functional newspaper-cum-Do-It-Yourself exhibition here:
