Two books on the Caucasus Theme, highly recommended

1. Kavkas / Kaukasus by Thomas Dworzak - a wonderful book of b/w photography from the conflicts in the Caucasus by appraised Magnum photographer Thomas Dworzak, this book gets my personal highest recommendation for everybody loving the Caucasus region and its history of tragic and heroism

2. Georgian Spring - A Magnum Journal

Did you know Robert Capa made some great photography in Georgia and Cartier-Bresson photographed Rustavi ?

Enjoy this fantastic photo book with the famous Magnum photographers Martine Franck, Martin Power, Alex Majoli, Martin Parr, Alec Soth, Thomas Dworzak, Jonas Bendiksen, Antoine D'Agata, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and Paolo Pellegrin with an Essay by well known Author Wendell Steavenson.

Some of my favorite photography in this book is by Mark Powers, Anione D'Agata and Martin Parr, not diminishing the other artists searching for the hidden images of the New Georgia.
