[Photography]: Nazik Armenakyan Presents: Images of Genocide survivors.

April 29, 2010

Hat Tip: Shushan Harutyunyan

A photo exhibition honoring survivors of the Armenian Genocide titled simply “Survivors” opened April 23 at the Union of Artists in Yerevan and is the two-year work of photojournalist Nazik Armenakyan.

In black and white it presents photos of 40 people who were eyewitnesses to the horrors that befell Armenians during the scourge by Ottoman Turkey in 1915-18.

Armenakyan, staff photographer at ArmeniaNow, says the experience of capturing the faces that represent the family histories of so many millions of Armenians worldwide was “another attempt to remind of the innocent victims of 1915.”
