a group exhibition of young Georgian photographers working with film photography

About

“daydreams” is an exhibition featuring four young Georgian photographers: Sophie Berdzenishvili, Kakha Kakhiani, Tina Kazakhishvili and Mano Svanidze. They all use film photography and each of them has their own distinct style.

Sophie Berdzenishvili creates surreal, minimalist and bold images, where she intertwines common symbols with her own allegories. The subjects she most often depicts are emotional entrapment, female self-reflection and the conflict between the roles imposed upon us by the society and our struggle against them.

Kakha Kakhiani is a photographer who renders contemporary Georgian life from a rural and urban perspective. He is the author of two photo books, one capturing life in the Georgian capital – Tbilisi, and the other in the Belgian town of Turnhout.

Tina Kazakhishivili photographs a variety of subjects, from ethic groups in different parts of Georgia, through street life and theatre artists to more intimate portraits and poetic urban scenes. She works prevalently in black and white and uses double exposures, underlining the light and atmosphere of her images.

Mano Svanidze portrays people around her, their moods and emotions. Through her photography, Mano attempts to capture the emotional portraits of her subjects, often family and friends, in everyday, but often oneiric setting. She also works with street photography.
