The Suitcase With Dad's Negatives

Year: 1970-1990
Country: Georgia
Video Duration

Video duration: 4:51

In 1970s, 1980s and 1990s, when Shaverdyan lived in Tbilisi, photographers did not belong to the elite caste of artists, and no one knew about the existence of this interesting "deserter". However, almost no one knows about him nowadays either. Today, Boris Shaverdyan's art is nothing but history, he no longer takes photos or lives in Tbilisi. Since 1990s, when Boris Shaverdyan left Georgia, his photos have been kept by photographer Guram Tsibakhashvili.
