. I was born and raised in a Georgian village and this is the main theme of my photos. In Georgian villages we can see very tensely what the country underwent in the recent past. During the last 20 years Georgia has been through three wars. This is a country with almost half of million refugees, uneven social environment and unemployment. There is especially hard situation in the villages. But despite this the people who live there beautifully carry on their traditions, kindness and simplicity. They live simply, plant and garden, fall in love, get married and never loose hope. They never loose the joy of life and the sense of humor. I think we can learn much from these people. If I have a chance with the help of KissKissBankBank, I will continue work to finish this project and publish the book. I will be very thankful if you help me to finish the project.
