Many of these, including backstage shots and look books, will be shot by Louisa Chalatashvili: whether it’s George Keburia’s alien sunglasses floating on the pink waters of a swimming pool, Tamuna Ingorokva’s beige leather coat matching pale walls and wild sunburnt grass in the sunset, or a tribe of schoolgirl-styled models driving a grand black Soviet ZIL limo through a Georgian highway.
Chalatashvili’s photography is all about treating eclectic and extravagant settings with a warm natural light and celebrating the magic of the analogue pastel colour palette, with a nod to American pop-up.
Her friends — local models, designers and photographers — are filmed exploring abandoned sanatoria, dystopian, concrete-clad neighbourhoods, the art-deco buildings of a former Tbilisi funicular or climbing the cliffy shores of a lake.
