The hippocampus is part of the brain center, which controls memory. The emotional belief based on the fear that memory will be lost, led me, unconsciously at first, consciously later, to photograph with the ultimate purpose of the creation of a visual diary.

A map, which eventually decodes it, escapes its prime role and leads to an inner journey of exploring the time and the emotions that it creates in its course. Management of fear, loss, repetition, guilt.
This series of slideshows have been recorded in order to create new artistic and educational opportunities for the Futures Talents - the photographers that are part of Futures platform.
In 2020 Tbilisi Photo Festival has joined the FUTURES - Europe based photography platform co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. Futures bring together the global photography community to support and nurture the professional development of emerging artists across the world.
