At Play on the Black Sea

January 13

A young man jumps into the Black Sea near Novorossiysk, Russia. In 1942, the town was occupied by Germans, but a small unit of Soviet sailors defended a part of the town known as Malaya Zemlya for 225 days. Novorossiysk was awarded the title of “Hero City” in 1973.

Mathias Depardon’s photo project, Black Sea Postcards, was featured on the National Geographic photography blog Proof »
