Beyond Sochi is a publication born out of Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak and writer William Dunbar’s exploration of Sochi against the backdrop of the opening of the 2014 Winter Olympic Games.

What began as a National Geographic commission in 2012 became an ebook and an unconventionally packaged version designed by Editions Seriti of Dworzak and Dunbar’s exploration of the region’s complexities.
