What was photographed, was photographed before… the time when we still believed in victory. Everyone I met on this journey was full of faith in victory. The work in the rear was in full swing in both Kornidzor and Stepanakert. People – villagers, doctors, bakers, soldiers, all of them were doing their work silently. Despite the tiredness, tension and uncertainty, no one complained. It was as if they had done it all their lives and lived by it.
I was thinking of returning to Artsakh again, for the third time, to continue the story I started during the war. The situation changed.
The daily life of Kornidzor continued.
