Event Description

Georgia is one of the world's unique cultures, and I feel blessed to be one of its children. Having grown up in a rural environment myself, I have always felt a close connection to the bounty of nature in Georgia. When I began working as a photographer, I knew that one of my goals was to document traditional life in Georgia. I love traveling to villages where folk traditions remain a vital part of everyday life. While I am not against the development of tourism in Georgia, I am concerned that commercial development might minimize or even wipe out some aspects of Georgia's unique traditions. It is especially for this reason that I intend to continue traveling around my country, capturing its beautiful people as they pass traditions down from generation to generation.
