2022 celebrates 30 years of Georgia's independence.

Take Your Seat was honoured to be commissioned to capture the natural, cultural, and architectural beauty of the country to mark the occasion. Our chair encountered an incredible range of subject matter that both surprised and inspired our cameras.

The photos below are the results of our first expedition to Georgia, taken over 16 days in May 2022. Welcome to Take Your Seat, Georgia!
