Natela Grigalashvili - Lost in the City


“My project intends to explore those people who left their native lands- small cities or villages and took refuge in a big city for survival or a better life. Residing in the suburbs mostly, they casually communicate with similar people, having found a shelter in a town. They have neither strength nor skills or relationships to alter their lives. Over the years, their lives here do not change, and they constantly feel out-casted and alienated from the big city”- Natela Grigalashvili.
