With PICTURE LANGUAGES. PHOTOGRAPHIC ART FROM GEORGIA, the Fotografie Forum Frankfurt (FFF) presents current trends and developments in Georgia's contemporary photography. This group exhibition is a collection of twelve important "voices" in this country. On focus are photographies mainly created since the end of the Soviet Union. Documentary images of Georgia’s struggle for independence, divers forms of portraiture, studies of tradition and symbolic places can be seen. One main aspect of the exhibition are the works of young photographers born in the late 1980s and early 1990s – they consistently work in coming to terms with the identity of their generation and the experimental handling of the medium of photography. In addition the exhibit provides insights into Georgia’s history of photography: with reproductions of the early artists Dimitri Ermakov and Alexander Roinashvili and the first female war photographer Nino Jorjadze. By this the exhibition imparts impressions from the history and modern life in Georgia – and as well various artistic positions of its relatively unknown photography scene.
