Dina Oganova: Frozen Waves

Dina Oganova: Frozen Waves
International Photography Grant 2019

All my childhood I was listening stories how some boy/man with friends were stealing a girl, to get a married after her. Sometimes girls didn’t even know who will be their future husbands and they didn’t have choice and decided to stay . It was a big shame to come back home after stealing. Everybody knows that you are not virgin anymore ,so who will marry you after that?! Family didn’t wanted to get them back, because now you have a new “owner”. It was “normal” in 90ies to Georgia, but I realize that its still happened somehow…
