He has shared there the local people’s life and reveals in a same movement these men and wen history and the Caucasian History. Between daily life, reminiscence of private tragedies and memory of collective dramas, his pictures reflect the difficulty in keeping living normally when borders are still unstable and the trauma still vivid.
