Tbilisi Photo Festival Kicks off on September 13

Founded in 2010 in partnership with Les Rencontres d’Arles by French Photographer Lionel Charrier, who now happens to be photo editor of the French Newspaper Liberation, and Nestan Nijaradze, Georgian photographer and journalist, the Tbilisi Photo Festival is to open this year in its 8th edition. Running from September 13 to 20, it will showcase the works of over 350 photographers, transforming Tbilisi into the photography capital of the Caucasus region for the duration of the event.

The world of fashion photography is to be the major focus of the program of the Tbilisi Photo Festival 2017, “exploring the connections between fashion, the tradition of identity representation, ideology and the photographic image”.

The two central events of the Tbilisi Photo Festival are to introduce the works of megastars of the photography world: for the first time in Caucasus, the visitors will have a chance to see the works of French photographer Guy Bourdain and Viviane Sassen, an artist from the Netherlands.
