“… And We Came Out To See Once More The Stars”

 2018 marks ten years since the Georgian-Russian War. Tbilisi Photo Festival took this milepost to examine the consequences of the conflict and subsequent occupation of the country, and to also probe the history of Georgia since independence in 1991, a period marked by armed conflicts in the territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

 The central event of the Tbilisi Photo Festival 2018 “…And We Came Out To See Once More The Stars” is an ambitious multimedia project combining video, photo, audio and texts and is “orchestrated” by French video artist Christian Barani – TPF 2018’s guest of honor. Internationally renowned for his refined style of “poesie realiste”, Barani travelled all over the Russian-Georgia war zone and documented the reality and daily life of those whose lives have been affected along the frontier of the Russian occupation line.

“…And We Came Out To See Once More The Stars” was also feature the poignant work of ten celebrated international photographers who documented the Russian-Georgian war in August 2008. Among them: Yuri Kozyrev/NOOR, Ron Haviv/VII, Lionel Charrier/MYOP, Michael Robinson Chavez, Thomas Dworzak/Magnum Photos, Justyna Mielnikiewicz/MAPS, Rena Effendi, , Olivier Laban-Mattei/MYOP, Q. Sakamaki, Bruno Stevens. 

In addition, emerging Georgian artists, Lado Lomitashvili and Andro Eradze were presented their multimedia installations while Georgian photographer, Tako Robakidze ‘s“Creeping Borders” - a long- term personal  project that focus on the consequences of Russian Occupation - will also be part of the opening exhibition of TPF 2018.
