Artwork Description
Garni is a village in the Kotayk Province of Armenia, situated approximately 28 km southeast from Yerevan. The village is rich in history. The area was first occupied in the 3rd millennium BC along easily defensible terrain at one of the bends of the Azat River. In the 8th century BC the area was conquered by the Urartian King Argishti I. The fortification at Garni was erected probably sometime in the 3rd century BC as a summer residence for the Armenian Orontid and Artaxiad royal dynasties. Later around the 1st century BC the fortress of Garni became the last refuge of King Mithridates of Armenia, where he and his family were assassinated by his son in law and nephew Rhadamistus. The fortress was eventually sacked in 1386 by Timur Lenk. In 1679 an earthquake devastated the area destroying the temple. Much of the population descends from people settled in the population exchange of 1829–1830, following the Treaty of Turkmenchay between Russia and Persia.

Biography
I’m a photographer based in Los Angeles. I have always been interested in photography and started my experience with the camera when I was 17. I’m a firm believer that when you enjoy your work it shows in the product you create. In my case, the images I capture show the passion I have for this trait and that I put my heart in the work I do.
