Tina Kazakhishvili

Tina Kazakhishvili is an architect at the National Museum of Georgia, but her great passion is photography. She likes to be spontaneous and uses black and white to achieve a more personal work, where textures and nostalgic scenes are predominant. Her images have a authenticity seal difficult to ignore. Her uncle was the culprit of introducing her to photography and since then she hasn’t stopped shooting. She admires Italian cinema and documentary photography with a social side.

Seeking Magazine: Tell us something about you.
Tina Kazakhishvili: I am an architect by profession. But appears my major profession has been replaced by photography and I think my photos tell more and better about me than myself.
