Ա, Ayb. The letter A. The start of a journey.
Ayb explores Armenia and Nagorno Karabakh during the Armenian Genocide Centennial commemoration from the perspective of a husband discovering the culture of his wife's family heritage. An experiential photoessay and political reflection in four parts, it is a humanist quest for, and discovery of, peace and joy in a region shaped by conflict and tragedy.
The photos here are a selection from the overarching essay, which can be read on exposure.
Amousin: Husband or spouse. Transitioning from being a student of history to a shepherd of history.
Anmorouk: Forget-me-not. Memorial observations of the Armenian Genocide by political, religious, and radical organizations.
Artsakh: Strong Forest, or, the historic name for Nagorno Karabakh. The burden of liberation and occupation.
Akhber: Brother, informally. Political postures and the transcendent power of brotherhood.
