FOTOGRAFIA Limited Edition Prints: Gallery 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.

Our gallery intern will work with our gallery director to develop our print and online catalog. In particular, our gallery intern will help design our Summer Edition print catalog. This will include: writing short descriptions of our artist’s works, designing the layout of the catalog, and updating it with relevant information. Additionally, if there is time our intern may assist the gallery director with our Spring exhibition.
