In September 2019, the PhotoDemos team travelled to Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi, to join the Tbilisi Photo Festival at the invitation of its founder Nestan Nijaradze. Over a period of several days we attended talks and workshops, visited the exhibitions organized across a number of venues in the city.
