Exhibition - Georgian Spring. Georgian Ministry of Culture
"Georgian Spring" is the travel journal of ten Magnum photographers who visited Georgia during spring 2009.
Situated on the eastern fringe of Europe, between Turkey and Russia, with a sophisticated culture that dates back to its settlement by the ancient Greeks, Georgia was forcibly incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1922. Its independence was restored in 1991, but this was followed by civil war and economic breakdown. In the 21st century, despite ongoing tensions with Russia, Giorgia has mounetd a spirited comeback, transforming itself into a modern European state at a remarkable pace.
