"“Shvilishvili” is Georgian for “grandchild”. In this project, presented as a hand-made photography book-object, the author questions the value of family ties in modern society through the blood line that connects and separates her relatives who live both in Russia and Georgia. The family is divided between two countries, and the problems of it’s members on both sides of the border arise from the post-war political situation as well as the tragic story of a murder committed inside the family."
