The evolution of photography in Georgia reveals three major periods spanning three centuries: the Golden Age of Georgian photography that lasted from the introduction of photography in 1840s until the end of the nineteenth century, the Soviet Period when the communist regime used all arts — including photography — as a tool of ideological propaganda for 70 years of the twentieth century; and the New Wave — a photographic revolution that began in the early 1990s during a challenging post-Soviet period after a painful crash of the political, economic and social systems in all ex-Soviet republics including Georgia.
The lecture will be in English.
