In 2008 a five-day war took place on the territory of the unrecognized republic South Ossetia (northern part of the internationally recognized Georgian territory) with the participation of Ossetian, Russian and Georgian forces. The war was preceded by years of skirmishes and constant tension.
The project about generation that was young during break-down in South Ossetia in 2008 tell us what young people who live in one of the unrecognized republics experienced. The book is as a chorus of voices that tell us the story through memories.
Generation were born and raised in a constant tension. For them, playing outdoors with the sound of gunfire does not seem unusual. Taking portraits of young people, I talked with them about what they experienced and what emotions it caused. How war made their childhood different from what we imagine.
Speaking of the war and the recognition of the republic, I did not take the position of either side. The name of the project is the coordinates of the capital of the region — Tskhinvali (Tskhinval). The coordinates are only one thing that recognized by all countries in the world.
