Georgian photographer Tako Robakidze is in a three-person shortlist for this year's Stanley Greene Legacy Prize and Fellowship, an award designated to focus on photographers from Eastern Europe and Central Asia in its second edition.

Robakidze, known for her documentary photography including on the Creeping Borders series that grew out of her fellowship of the prominent Magnum Foundation in 2017, was picked by juries of the award alongside Armenian freelance photographer Biayna Mahari and Mouneb Taim of Syria.

The prize is organised by NOOR Foundation, which focuses on documentary photography and photojournalism and honours the legacy of American photographer Stanley Greene, who documented major geopolitical events in Europe and the Middle East over decades.
