AMOR Y VIDA

Zugdidi, Georgia. 2013

En esta escuela abandonada viven 15 familias de refugiados expulsados de Gagra, Abjasia, durante el conflicto entre abjasos y georgianos que comenzó en 1992 y todavía no termina de resolverse.

Más de 20 años de sobrevivir de un lugar a otro esperando las promesas del gobierno georgiano de realojarles para comenzar una nueva vida.
El amor entre ellos es lo que les mantiene vivos.
Esas fueron las dos palabras que utilizamos escritas en dos manos cortadas, arrancadas de su lugar de origen, pero de las que brotan unas hojas de colores y un corazón que simbolizan la VIDA y el AMOR.

LOVE and LIFE

Zugdidi, Georgia. 2013

In this abandoned school building, are now living 15 refugee families evicted from Gagra, Abjasia, during the conflict between the abjasians and georgians that started back in 1992 and is still active.

More than 20 years of surviving and moving from one place to another, they are still waiting for the promises from the georgian government of rehousing their families, to begin a new life.
"Fraternal love is what keeps them alive"
Those were the words we wrote on two "amputated hands", taken out from their original place, but from where colored leaves and a heart are born, symbolizing LOVE and LIFE.
