A photography project that looks at former host cities of the Olympic Games, and what happens to a city after the Olympics are gone.
1,503 backers pledged $66,162 to help bring this project to life.

The next city is...

We're excited to announce that the next city in The Olympic City project is… Sarajevo. Sarajevo hosted the 1984 Winter Olympics, and subsequently endured the longest siege of a capitol city in modern history during the Bosnian War (1992-1996). The city is still in the process of reconstruction, but it's growing quickly. We're interested to look at what remains of the '84 Games, and how it's integrating with the new Sarajevo. 

Jon will be photographing the city in a few weeks, and he'll be posting updates and photos for you as he explores.

And we're in the last week of our Kickstarter campaign, so please help spread the word! Here's the link:

      Excellent choice! Especially knowing what happened there, it'll be very interesting city to document.

      Isn't Serajevo the city with "roses" in the streets to mark explosions? This is a perfect city for the book.

      Good choice!
