Tusheti trilogy




I have been working with the nomadic Tush community in my native Georgia over the past few years, researching the changes due to digitisation and accelerated development of infrastructure. Tusheti trilogy is the result of my research and periods of deep immersion into the mountain community. 

For me, the Tush people stand out for their dedication to their traditional way of life which is influenced as much by extreme weather conditions as by the symbolic order: Gods are cherished and respected, while Tush language reflects their struggle for survival.

For centuries, the Tushetians have maintained a harmonious relationship with nature, engaging in a cyclical migration in tandem with the seasons of the year. In high altitudes, when the temperature drops below zero, it is essential to choose the right time for crossing snow-covered Abano Pass, 2800m above sea level - considered one of the most dangerous roads in the world.
