Tiflis - Leben in einer neuen Zeit - Exhibit at the Gasteig

I'm lucky to know a lot of talented people in town. One of those people is Lisa Fuhr; friend, Deutsch Lehrerin extraordinaire and talented photographer.

Tiflis - Leben in einer neuen Zeit is the culmination of three years of work. Lisa traveled to Tiflis, Georgia to interview and photograph everyday people and chronicle their lives after the fall of the Soviet Union.

Most westerners (self included) know little to nothing about this region and it's history. I went to the opening on Tuesday night and was fascinated by the stories of human resilience and determination.

The exhibit is at the Gasteig through April 2014, you should definitely check it out. There is also a really beautifully designed book that's part of the project, but bring cash if you want to purchase one!
