Every Saturday we select a photo from our Flickr pool to be featured on hearty

Mariam Kalandarishvili is a 20-year-old photographer from Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. Currently studying studying film and theater at the state university, Mariam has been pursuing photography on her own time.

"It’s very small like a family, everyone knows everyone here," Mariam says of living in the former Soviet Union. "Of course this city in general affects my photography. There is a big difference between my photos that I take abroad and those here in Georgia. It’s kind of more personal because the situations and people here are close to me. I exactly know what I shoot and abroad I am discovering new things all the time-so at the moment I prefer to work there."

The photo above was taken in Berlin, it was the view from her window. When it comes to cameras, Mariam only uses film and tends to use her Minolta SRT 202 and Lomo Fisheye.

To see more of Mariam's work please check out her Flickr.
