Brian McKee and the 2014 Olympics in Russia

15 new works by photographer Brian McKee open at the Vogt Bernal gallery in New York today. Called “The Power Suites,” these photographs track the progress of the building in Sochi, Russia for the upcoming 2014 Olympics, with a focus on the impact on the natural environment. Currently one of the largest construction projects in the world, the Sochi countryside is being leveled in order to create an entire city and infrastructure to support the Olympics and the tourism it will bring to the small, coastal city.
