The daily experiences of young people in Germany's multicultural capital Berlin is the theme of a month-long photo exhibition by Georgian artist George Nebieridze.

The exhibition opened in the Dutch city of Rotterdam last weekend.

Featuring a collection of works from his upcoming artist book '15, the display presents intimate portraits of the Berlin-based artist's friends as well as a range of scenes illustrating the German capital.

The exhibition, also named '15, opened on May 14 at Rotterdam's Tante Nino Gallery - a venue owned by Georgian resident Nino Purtskhvanidze.

This will be Nebieridze's sixth solo exhibition. The Nederlands Fotomuseum venue director Ruud Visschedijk said his collection of works were "romantic, desiring and occasionally humorous".

In [Nebieridze's] hands, the camera is a voracious machine, which curiously scans its surrounding seizing anything it desires," said Visschedijk in his review of the artist book '15.

Born in Georgia, Nebieridze moved to Berlin in 2013 after gaining a Bachelor's degree in Sociology and Politics from Tbilisi's Ilia State University. He is self-taught in photographic art, having been involved in documentary photography for the last decade.

I developed most of my photographic skills through experience and having surrounded myself with interesting, creative people since childhood, including my family. I can't stop being curious and wanting to explore the unknown," Nebieridze told online art magazine i-D, which published a piece about his work.

The Georgian artist has also featured in the online art magazine Dazed Digital.

Nebieridze's exhibition '15 will be held at Tante Nino Gallery in Rotterdam until June 16.
