#28: Special Libanon – Late night talk with internationally acclaimed photographer and business man Roger Moukarzel

“Because I was born into a family of journalists, I used to hang out with journalists at the newspaper office. When the war erupted in Lebanon, I used to take my brother’s camera – at a very early stage – and shoot some black and white images in the village.” „I was aware that what we used to do as war photographers was not translated accurately.

#26: Special Georgia – Spending time with the internationally renowned artist Maka Batiashvili

"Art is not only a means of pleasure, but also expression and establishment of freedom, the relation of the internal world to the surrounding environment (…), the conflict of idealism and realism, the relation between the existence and non-existence.
