The middle East and the Armenian Photographers


This event is part of Armenia Year celebrations. During the second half of the 19th and the first decade of the 20th century, many Armenians based in large Eastern-European cities made a living taking photographs. Western photographers in those days were primarily interested in archaeological vestiges and biblical sites. But Armenian photographers made a living shooting in their studios in working-class suburbs.
