Gvantsa Tskhovrebashvili started shooting on film in 2019 after completing the Nakani-Mamasakhlisi Photography Course, which laid the foundation for her photography style. This medium became her calling when purchased her first film camera.
Tkhovrebashvili’s work is primarily portraiture, including self-portraits, which convey a sense of melancholy.
"I think each of my photos is a fragment of a non-existent story, the mood of which is conveyed by the image. The viewer must in turn fill in the story themselves.’
Photography became more interesting to her when she started darkroom printing.
'Working in the darkroom makes photography even more diverse and interesting. You can get completely different prints from one negative. I enjoy printing more than taking photos lately; I feel like I’m creating something new when I put the photo paper in the chemistry and the image slowly appears.’
