14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
Mountain Village.

Image from my photo project about the Caucasus,about the daily life of the local population,its customs, everyday life. A place photography - the Republic of Abkhazia, today, as a result, the collapse of the Soviet Union and the armed conflict with Georgia in 1992-1993 years- is now a disputed territory. I take ordinary people, mountain villages, remote from civilization. My attempt to tell you about this small but proud country, its stunning nature, warm the soul of the residents, about issues that for more than twenty years of post-war left its mark on this place.
