“Shvilishvili” is Georgian for “grandchild”, literally it could be translated as “a child of a child”. In this very personal project, presented as a hand-made limited edition photography book-object, the author questions the 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 commited inside the family.
