Main Philosophy

Mafgroup is the artistic union of innovative artists and professional photographers in Georgia. This is the first generation of artists who get the professional education in the field of photography – October 2001 CCCD established the Caucasian Institute of Photography and New Media in Tbilisi. The Institute was located in the Carvasla, but from March 2006 integrated in Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, with the name – Institute of Optical Imaging.

Maf Group is giving possibilities to promising young artists, to become the members of maf group.
