5elect5 Essentials Hands George Nebieridze

Georgian photographer George Nebieridze known for his portraits and film photography of Berlin’s youth and subcultures, music and nightlife shares his essentials.

Nebieridze’s unreserved and thought-provoking photos capture genuine experiences and honest connections between friends and muses, moments of heightened emotion and loss of control. His conscious choice to stay away from additional digital post-production enhance the narratives of these scenes. His work can be seen regularly in renown publications such as Vice, Dazed, Butt, i-D Magazine and in galleries all over the world.

Travelling back and forth between his two homes Berlin and Tbilisi, Nebieridze continues to find and document the raw beauty in unexpected moments on film. He is currently working on his third photo book to be released later this year. To purchase George Nebieridze’s first books, visit his shop here.
