Luka Khabelashvili

“My hometown, Gori, Georgia, can seem boring and limiting in terms of creativity. However, that also challenges you to think more. I am immersed in art. I paint, I make music, I am a wood carver — I do a lot of things, but I don’t share everything. I started taking photos very early on, somewhere between the ages of 10 – 13, when I joined the digital world. I have a lot of shots which I keep to myself, which I haven’t taken, and exist only in my head. There are no digital versions of these shots. They don’t exist for others – you can’t see them, you can’t touch them.” –
