About Dato


Dato Koridze is a documentary photographer and a journalist based in Tbilisi, Georgia.

“My first encounter with photography was in my childhood. I remember my summer holidays in a village, and a photographer, the only one in that region.

At the age of 19 I started photographing more consciously. I didn’t have a camera and there was no one to explain some basics to me. I did it on my own. I kept on looking through a lot of websites of famous photographers, their stories, watched some movies. Actually, it last till now.

So, for me, documentary photography is the best way of telling stories, that are happening around me.

I work for RFE/RL Tbilisi. I’m a host at the morning show. Also, I’m teaching photography to youngsters at Nata Buachidze’s Studio.
