I have discovered Mariam Sitchinava’s work on The Weekender (a German magazine which I highly recommend) where she was responsable for the cover. The photo story inside is equally beautiful and the work on her web site even more.
Mariam lives in Tbilisi, capital of Georgia and shoots analog portrait and fashion photography. She has started shooting, without any formal education, in 2009. After 8 months of shooting she got her first commercial project. Who wonders? Her images are depicting feelings and emotions featuring young women surrounded most of the time by nature. If I had to develop a textile collection, I would work with her color palettes.
I have approached her asking if I could publish her images and asking at the time if she sells her art. I had seen some work on her shop and blog but was particularly interested in the first photograph you see above belonging to the series White Autumn. And I can call myself now the proud owner of her work:-)
Together with the first larger photography, she has sent several prints I’d like to give away (thank you so much, Mariam!) to two readers!
You have a first set of 4 images and 8″x 6″ each. Please refer to set A here if this is your choice.*
And the second giveaway will be this beautiful and larger image at 9″ x 8″. Please refer to set B here.*
