Worth a look: Rob Hornstra

Rob Hornstra - from the series The Georgian-Abkhaz conflict 2007

Just came across the work of Rob Hornstra, whose doing some great work in the former Soviet Union. His site’s a little weird to navigate, but click on “Portfolio” on the top of the page. I’ve only looked through 101 Billionaires 2008 and Georgian-Abkhaz conflict 2007, but I love it. Hyperrealist color, presented simply and straightforwardly. It’s detached and thoughtful. Really great, I think, but maybe a bit too artsy for some. Found via Conscientious.
