Like a new unhabitant of Tbilisi and fond of photographies, i’d like to get new culturals events in the city and there’s a 10 years old nice photo event this year, moreover it was co-founded by a french guy !
Tbilisi Photo Festival was co-founded by French photographer, currently Photo Editor in chief at the French daily newspaper Liberation, Lionel Charrier and the Georgian photo curator and journalist Nestan Nijaradze. It was first launched in 2010, in partnership with Les Rencontres d’Arles. Nine editions later it has become not only the most important photo festival in the region but one of the major annual cultural events in the Caucasus.
The Festival aims to be a central meeting point for photography from different regions – Asia, Iran, Turkey, Europe, the Arab world – and to showcase the best of world photography as well as to promote emerging regional photography.
With upcoming 10th edition, Tbilisi Photo Festival will firmely establish Tbilisi as capital of photography of the Caucasus.
