Survivors” were eyewitnesses of the Armenian Genocide, the horrors that befell Armenians during the scourge by Ottoman Turkey in 1915-18. By Nazik Armenakyan -- I began this project in 2005. In the photographs of my project, survivors in black and white are holding a photograph of themselves when they were younger. For many of them, the photograph of their younger self is the only one they have and the photograph taken of me might be the last one.
