Eröffnung: Donnerstag, 11.10.18 19 Uhr

Georgian alpinist and photographer Guram Tikanadze was born on September 12, 1932. Guram Tikanadze greatly contributed to the development of Georgian photography by creating a certain cultural and genetic tradition. While regularly being published in various Georgian and international publications, Guram participated in all republic, all-Soviet Union as well as international exhibitions (Italy, Japan, USA, Belgium, Hong Kong, etc.) and received numerous awards and prizes. The silver medal Guram Tikanadze received at the 1959 Youth and Students’ International Festival in Vienna became the rst international award in history of Georgian photography. On August 27, 1963, while descending from one of the peaks of the Caucasus – Shkhara – he tragically died. In honor of Guram Tikanadze, one of the peaks in the mountainous region of Eastern Georgia was named after him. In 2004, he was awarded the Alexander Roinashvili honorary prize for the outstanding merits in the development of Georgian photography by Kolga Tbilisi Photo.
