Women abduction is traced back to early centuries and was a very popular tradition in the Caucasus, Kirghizia, Kazakhstan, Greece, etc. Fellows used to abduct young ladies in order to marry them, without their consent. In most countries, such actions are considered evidence of violence. Georgia is not an exception to the rest of the world, but it is a place, where abduction still occurs and incidents still frequently exist.
This photo project is about the family, the conception of two people living together for twenty-two years, remembering their own story, their own marriage; it’s about the will of a man and the weakness of a woman, about their children and their future. This is a project about the forgiven unforeseen destiny, about stolen opportunities, giving up and getting used to fortune in exchange for finding alternative meanings of life, passion for living, for caring and love.
