Agara


In the mountains of Georgia, 20km north of the Turkish border is the village of Agara.

Predominantly a country of Christian Orthodox, the Muslim villagers carved out an identity for themselves even during the Soviet Union. Now under 200 people live in the village and their way of life is slowly fading away. After finishing their studies in the village, many of the youth choose to move toward the inner-cities for work and a more modern way of life.

This projects explores the lives of those who chose to stay behind and documents a dissapearing way of life.
