The Olympic City photo book available now
The Olympic City is an ongoing photography project by Jon Pack and Gary Hustwit that looks at the legacy of the Olympic Games in former host cities around the world. Hosting the Olympics has become a way for a city to show itself off on an international stage and generate toursim dollars, and cities spend millions or billions for the privilege. But after the events are over, the medals have been handed out, and the torch is extinguished, what’s next? What happens to a city after the Olympics are gone?
This 240-page limited-edition hardcover book features approximately 200 photos from the project and a foreword by New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman, and is designed by award-winning graphic designer Paul Sahre. A special edition version that includes original photo prints, and an ebook version are also available.
The book is a limited-edition of 1,000 copies, and most of them are already sold. Get a copy now.
