In The Picture: 1915 – My Armenia With Diana Markosian

Talking photos

Movses Haneshyan, 105, approaches a life-size landscape. He looks at the image and sings: “My home…my Armenia." A century ago there were 2m Armenians living in the Ottoman Empire. By the early '20s, 1.5m of them were dead, with many more forcibly removed from the country. The picture Movses is looking at is taken by Armenian-American photographer Diana Markosian. She traveled to Armenia to meet Movses and other survivors, to ask them about their last memories of their early home. She then retraced their steps in Turkey to retrieve a piece of their lost homeland. She will be joining us to show her work and share the stories of the survivors she met who, 100 years on, still remember their home.
