One can follow the history through the photographic images of public places, events, city maps and individual stories from two radically different parts of Georgia starting from 1920s until 1990s. Each image and each story presents the country more than the history books published during those times and even later. Through the narratives of the images, the years and families, their links, their relations and geography, we can map the stories and present the country’s real history. Furthermore each image can tell us a story of satisfactions, sorrows, worries and happiness, these stories shows how close people are connected to their roots and their neighbors, all adding a gravitas and wonder to how current conflicts that have ravaged and continue to ravage the country even took place.
