“Attempts” is a personal series that combines visual images with text. The series focuses on one period of time during which photography becomes an ally, helping to decipher feelings of loss, heartache and grief. Visual images and text complete each other - without one another they become obsolete, yet together they create a sort of visual diary. Navigating through complicated emotions of losing loved ones in different ways and moving forward in the new reality.
The project was produced in the frame of the Online Art Residency Accompanied by a Long-term Mentorship Program & Production Grant for South Caucasian Women Photographers for the Year 4 of MagiC Carpets April-September 2021.
Mentored by Newsha Tavakolian/Magnum Photos.
The program supports the South Caucasian women photographers and visual artists to produce stories covering different issues in the region.
The program was implemented by Tbilisi Photo Festival in a partnership with Tbilisi Photography & Multimedia Museum funded by MagiC Carpets, a Creative Europe Platform.
