GYUMRI-GYUMRI

Armenia's second city Gyumri went through a devastating earthquake in the winter of 1988. Throughout the harsh years that followed, changes in the city were slow.

The photos presented are coupled, showing earthquake ruins and a picture of present-day Gyumri. Bringing together the two images in a similar composition is an attempt at bringing together the past and the present of Gyumri, as if reconciling them after 27 years.
