New Me

Child, occupational, brush, autism, mirror, Gayane, adaptation, integration, noomee, virtual, parent, cucumber… Everything circles like a scattered mosaic in the space, in uncertainty, around me. I don’t understand anything from this, my questions have no answers. Who am I now? What feelings do I ha...
In one of the buildings of the previous infection hospital of the city of Abovyan live thirty-six people in need of care. In each room along the long corridor of the one-storey building live four people. They have tried to settle the neighbours so that they have something in common and get along wit...
There are photographed stories to which I want to go back again from time to time. In 2013 I had made a portrait series of the musicians of the Music Collectives of the Union of The Blind in Armenia and Folk Musical Instruments Band. I thought to photograph one of the young singers Arpineh Martirosy...
In February of 2018 I was hosted at a guest house located at the entrance of the city of Alaverdi. When I got there, it was already getting dark, I stood for a moment in front of river Debed, which seemed like a huge, blue dragon, that was running madly towards the depths of the city. The city, thou...

Together

To create a mechanism which would itself prompt the content of the image. This was the motive which made me place my second camera into Kristine’s hands.

There are many people around us, who do not live the life they want, they just survive becoming the victims of different stereotypes. I chose Astrid to be the protagonist of my photostory, because she, despite others, is one of those, who tries to overcome the difficulties, be it family issues, or s...

Days Lived

I first met Amalya in the spring of 2018 in Vanadzor. The occasion for our meeting was the search for a protagonist for my photo story. And I find myself at Shinararneri 15, apt. 3. A one-room cold rented apartment, where Amalya lives with her mother Alvard. Mrs. Alvard immediately treats me wit...

Every time when going to Katnaghbyur village (Aragatsotn region) I have taken my heavy bag of photography tools but come back without ever opening it. Shall I photograph the neighbor Arus or lie down on the bench, drink coffee with her and listen to her? The women of our village were so beautiful...
By Garegin Aleksanyan A moving vehicle, standing air, inharmonious images, a hardly grasping hand, a pressing heaviness, a sharpening denseness, an unplanned exercise of yoga with unmatchable music tunes, a driver’s gaze looking in the mirror through the smoke, people stooping and hardly fitting ...
