I absolutely respect your work as a photographer. I just briefly want to mention about the geographical definition of Georgia. I understand that some of the sites, including Wikipedia, still using old, historical wrong terms to the geographical definition of Georgia, which also had its historical causes. Thing is Georgia was forcibly hidden from the rest world, especially from the rest Europe, for long time, hence misconceptions and definitions, about Georgian and about geographical definition of Georgia, which are based also from false stereotypes of Soviet era (as all this happened about other former Soviet republics), at the moment the historical incorrect, false geographical definition of Georgia as a Eurasian country. Fortunately, bases on the entire historical process of last decades, specifically the historical process based on the historical process of returning Georgians to its European roots, and therefore returning to true Georgian roots, Georgia, geographically is more and more often mentioned and approved as only as a European country, as a territory of South-Eastern Europe of the Caucasus region and not as Eurasia in international, in European maps, in official political European structures, in information spaces that we hope will bring to he final restoration of historical justice and Georgia, also geographically, officially and unequivocally will be called, as only as Europe and not Eurasia, in this part of the Caucasus region of Europe, also by Wikipedia. And the vast majority of Georgians consider just like this. Not to mention the fact that the Georgians themselves come from two ancient European ethnic groups, specifically from Iberians and Kolkhians. The ancient culture, folklore, architecture of Georgians is original and unique, but at the same time absolutely European (Iberian/Kolkhian/Colchids),as the culture, folklore of other nations, other European peoples. Also Georgian classical culture, literature, music, opera, theater, cinema, art of drawing, ballet, ideas and values of famous Georgians and so on. are absolutely European. One of closest ethnic peoples for Georgians are the Corsicans and other Iberian/Celtic peoples and so on and so forth. With this, it should also be noted that in one part of capital city of Georgia, Tbilisi, which is called "Old Tbilisi", where different ethnic peoples, representatives of Iranians, Azerbaijans, Armenians, Kurds and others, lived and live for the centuries, who also speak and sing Georgian, but with their ethic cultural mix, with their oriental rhythms and so on., this cultural mix is a part of old Tbilisi, but it's not Georgian music, folklore and so on. Georgian music, folklore has no oriental/eastern rhythms, it's absolutely Iberian/Kolkhian/European and so on. Sincerely,Alex
Hi Alex, thank you for wonderful explanation.
