Georgian ABC book

The idea of ABC Book was born when I was working on Open Society Documentary Photography Project. The theme was the life of Georgian village. A word and a photo are united in the project but the photo is not the direct illustration of the word. Dawn, sky, , "sheni chiri me" ("I love you so much, you are so dear to me that I want to shoulder your woes") these are the words which is often used by these people and represents the part of their lives.

Georgian ABC book

<p> . 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.<img alt="Abc" src=""></p>

Allocation of funds

<p> I have only half of the material for the book. Unfortunately I cannot continue working. I need to finance my travel and work in the villages of Georgia. Unfortunately there are no funds in Georgia that would make it possible to carry on this project. The given amount will be enough to finish the project.<img alt="Abc1" src=""><img alt="Georg" src=""></p>
