Synopsis

One of the most accomplished photojournalists alive today, Martin Parr turns his lens toward Tbilisi, Georgia's capital, and captures the beauty of this vibrant city.

With curiosity and zeal, Martin Parr has been photographing people and the way we live for more than thirty years. One of the leading members of the Magnum Photos collective, Parr has traveled the world to investigate the international phenomena of leisure, consumption, and communication. His often humorous images juxtapose the peculiar with the familiar. The growing city of Tbilisi is the perfect subject for Parr's eloquent portraits. A burgeoning travel destination, Tbilisi straddles 21st-century European chic with world-weary Soviet influences. At street markets and high-end stores, gyms and the opera house, family parties and casinos, Parr documents, in his own inimitable way, a dynamic, ever-changing city that feels simultaneously utterly foreign and completely familiar.
