George Nebieridze is a Tbilisi, Georgia native now based in Berlin. His occupation: creative slash photographer. George’s unreserved and thought-provoking photography scored him a great deal of magazines that salute(ed) his work. From Vice to i-D, Dazed Digital, Dreck Magazine… George is also a founder of CZE Magazine - a self-published web magazine that is all about photography.
His work has been exhibited in many group and solo exhibitions, to be more precise – he just had his 7th solo expo in Rotterdam. At the moment George is just in the midst of finishing his first photo book called ’15—a compilation of pictures taken over one year in Berlin. George’s photos know no filter – literally. He (along with his work) is out there keeping things real, completely natural, privy and pulsing with the vitality.
