FOTOGRAFIA Limited Edition Prints: Social Media Internship
The Gallery: Fotografia is Tbilisi’s first limited edition photography gallery dedicated exclusively to supporting the work of local and international photographers who have a focus on the Caucasus. Established in 2017 by American-born photographer, Ryan McCarrel, and Georgian visual artist, Giorgi Rodionov, the gallery’s mission is to raise awareness of the significant contributions made by the Georgian photographic community to the visual arts.
