[Web Wrap]: “Father Land,” a Father-Son Collaboration on Artsakh Published.

October 26, 2010

At times capturing an intimate familial moment; at other times, in the street, observing the chaos of life; or reverent in the presence of Karabagh’s millennial churches, the images simultaneously document, explore, and reflect upon Karabagh’s precarious present and his own place in this Father Land.

Los Angeles – Father Land by Vahé and Ara Oshagan is a poetic and personal journey through the rugged, human-and-history-laden landscape of Karabagh / Armenia. It is also a unique collaboration between a photographer son and his well-known, writer father.

A family steeped in Armenian literature and art, Vahé and Ara Oshagan’s work is the result of an intensely felt connection to their heritage and homeland. Father Land is a literary and visual contemplation of Karabagh/Armenia’s present-day, its history and its culture, as well as a meditation on transnational identity, land, and paternal bonds.
