Research Methods

This project draws on anthropological research methodology combined with digital techniques of mapping and photogrammetry. All the media you find on this website was gathered in a 5-day field trip to Latali/Svaneti. Instead of building coherent stories, we aim to provide access to our material without setting a journalistic spin or imposing a specific glance. You can browse the collection both by using the map and through categories. We provide 10 categories induced from the field interviews to order the cards.

Many things have been written about the Svans without including their perspective. This is why we collaborated closely with locals, guiding our perspective and providing context. We especially thank Dr. Nino Tserediani for her huge investment in this project.
