fototazo 93: Giorgi Shengelia


Giorgi Shengelia
moving, from the series "four room"
Florence, Italy 2012

Series Statement: The documentary project "four room" is about immigrant women who live in Italy. The project is made in a home where only Georgian immigrant women live and discovers their daily lives. The boundaries of the project do not change because most of the woman do not go outside as they do not have permission to live here. The situation does not change at the home; a woman gets a job and leaves and another takes her place. They stay at home waiting to get hired. Sometimes it takes a month or more. Every Thursday immigrant guests visit them; they have a good time with their friends this day because its a day of rest. They're still talking about returning to Georgia. They hope to get employed for now, however, and plan to eventually return.
