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 tourism
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?
