South Ossetia archive featured on Instagram


It is nine years since the Russo-Georgian war took place, a war between Georgia, Russia and the Russian-backed self-proclaimed republics of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Writer Arnold van Bruggen and I have made a book and exhibition about Abkhazia, not so many people know that we also covered South Ossetia as part of the The Sochi Project. This month I am featuring a series of photos made in South Ossetia on my Instagram account. And yes, we also met president Eduard Kokoity, though he was pushed aside already several months later.
