    Γεωργιανή ανεξάρτητη ντοκιμαντέρ φωτογράφος που εργάζεται σε προσωπικά μακροπρόθεσμα πρότζεκτ, κυρίως στη Γεωργία και τις μετά-Σοβιετικές χώρες.

    Το 2012 κέρδισε το πρώτο βραβείο παραγωγής από την Open Society Foundation για μεμονωμένους φωτογράφους από την κεντρική Ασία, τον Νότιο Καύκασο, το Αφγανιστάν, την Μογγολία και το Πακιστάν. Την ίδια χρονιά παρακολούθησε εργαστήρια με τους Τόμας Ντβόρσακ (Magnum), Γιούρι Κόζιρεφ (Noor), Άντριαν Κέλτεμπορν και τον Αντρέι Πολικανόφ. Το 2013 επιλέχθηκε μεταξύ των 12 καλύτερων νέων φωτογράφων για να παρακολουθήσει σεμινάριο του Γιοπ Σβαρτ απ’ το World Press Photo. Ήταν η πρώτη Γεωργιανή φωτογράφος που επιλέχθηκε γι’ αυτό το εικοσαετούς διαδρομής σεμινάριο. Το 2014 επιλέχθηκε ως μια από τις 30 καλύτερες γυναίκες φωτογράφους νεότερες των 30 ετών. Το 2015 χαρακτηρίστηκε από το PDN ως μια από τους 30 δυναμικά αναδυόμενους φωτογράφους  κάτω από την ηλικία των 30 ετών και την ίδια χρονιά ήταν φιναλίστ για το βραβείο Γουόλις Άνενμπεργκ. Τα μακρόχρονα πρότζεκτ της “Είμαι η Γεωργία”, “Ο τόπος μου” και το “Παγωμένα κύματα” εκτέθηκαν στη Γαλλία, Ιταλία, Ισπανία, Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες της Αμερικής, Πολωνία, Γερμανία, Τουρκία, Σουηδία, Δανία, Λιθουανία, Ουκρανία, Μπαγκλαντές, Καμπότζη, Αιθιοπία, Σιγκαπούρη και Γεωργία. Είναι η συγγραφέας της πρώτης χειροποίητης περιορισμένη έκδοσης (87) του λευκώματος “Ο τόπος μου” σχετικά με τη νέα γενιά της Γεωργίας, της πρώτης που έζησε μετά την κατάρρευση της Σοβιετικής Ένωσης και μεγάλωσε στην ανεξάρτητη Γεωργία. Το λεύκωμα βρίσκεται στη συλλογή διάφορων μουσείων συμπεριλαμβανομένου του Μητροπολιτικού Μουσείου της Νέας Υόρκης. Τώρα εργάζεται για το δεύτερο χειροποίητο περιορισμένης έκδοσης λεύκωμα “Παγωμένα κύματα”

    Frozen Waves

    My whole childhood I used to hearing stories how boys/men kidnaped girls with help of their friends, to get a married on them. Sometimes kidnaped girls didn’t even know who would become their future husbands. They had no choice, they decided to stay weather wanted or not. It was a big shame to come back home after kidnapping. Everybody thought that were not virgins anymore. So, who would marry them, who would marry disgraced girls?!  Family didn’t want to get them back, because now they had a new “owner”.  It was “normal” in 90’s Georgia, nobody even protested. When I grew up, I thought it was over, but at some point I realized that it’s still happening…

    2014-ongoing

    Παγωμένα Κύματα

    Στα παιδικά μου χρόνια συνήθιζα ν’ ακούω ιστορίες για το πώς αγόρια και άντρες απήγαγαν κορίτσια με τη βοήθεια των φίλων τους ώστε να τις παντρευτούν. Κάποιες φορές τα κορίτσια που είχαν απαχθεί δεν γνώριζαν καν ποιοι επρόκειτο να γίνουν οι μελλοντικοί τους σύζυγοι. Δεν είχαν άλλη επιλογή, παρέμεναν ακόμη κι αν δεν το ήθελαν. Ήταν μεγάλη ντροπή να επιστρέψουν στο σπίτι μετά την απαγωγή τους. Όλοι θα σκέφτονταν πως δεν είναι παρθένες πια. Έτσι ποιος θα τις παντρευόταν, ποιοι θα παντρευόταν ατιμασμένα κορίτσια;Η οικογένειά τους δεν τις ήθελε πίσω γιατί πλέον είχαν νέο «ιδιοκτήτη».Ήταν «κανονικό» κατά τη δεκαετία του ’90 στη Γεωργία, κανείς δε διαμαρτυρόταν. Όταν μεγάλωσα νόμιζα πως είχε σταματήσει, μέχρις ότου συνειδητοποίησα πως ακόμη συμβαίνει…
