The twins, Ushguli, August 2004

This pair reveal what true Svans look like, Georgian highlanders unmixed with the ancient invaders from Persia or Turkey. I have photographed them on all three visits, but sadly they are now at school in Tbilisi. I hope they will return to the mountains eventually, but more, I hope that they will WANT to, encouraged by improved conditions and a hope and a future.

Here end the Ushguli shots for now - we move on.
