Grave flowers

In my photographs, which I have been taking for years, I discovered that the same images keep appearing: flowers on the graves, grey hair, pools of blood during the mountain celebrations, fading plants, cemeteries, lifeless animals left on the roads… I see the connection between the images. All photographs don’t have a person in it. Each photograph is still life, as a symbol, which speak of fleetingness of life and certainty death. It has become my way to fight a fear of death in order to understand it, through the medium of photography. The reality depicted in the photographs, despite its tragic contest, often does contemplate the beauty. The whole process of collecting the evidence of the ephemerality of life has turned into one big mystery for me. This very indefinable mysticism attracts me most of all in this collection.

Shipping Options

Shipping costs are calculated automatically at checkout. Aramex Express has consistently provided our gallery with a high level of reliability and speedy service for worldwide shipments. Our prints are carefully packaged to ensure their integrity during transit. We insure your package for the value of your print just in case your package is lost or damaged.

Processing: It can take us up to 5 business days to process your package and send your print. This is because the Georgian government often requires us to submit a request to the Ministry of Culture to receive permission to send parcels that may contain cultural artifacts, including our limited edition prints.

Delivery: After placing your order you will receive a tracking number from us to track your print or photography book while it is in transit. Aramex Express usually takes between 5 and 7 business days to reach Western Europe from Georgia, and 6-10 days to reach North America.

You can visit Aramex for more information about their policies. If you have already purchased your print, you can track your package here.

Please note: you may have to pay import taxes depending on the value of your print. Import taxes are not included in the shipping cost as they vary from country to country. If you live in the European Union you can find more information about import taxes on the EU’s consumer website.

 

Alternative Shipping Methods: In some cases alternative international shipping methods are available which may reduce the cost of sending your parcel, however we have not found these services very reliable. If you would like us to send your print with an alternative less expensive service, such as Georgian Post, we can do so, but we do not recommend it.
