As you name the boat so shall it float / 2021

Series of photographs on local Armenian names and the people who bear them. A subtle interaction with people’s ordinary lives, while still allowing space to tell made-up imaginative tales. Everyday objects were used to decorate and style each shot. Each name served as an ice-breaker, and as a departure point for the creative process. The resulting photographs are not accurate representations of the names’ existing meanings but the journey which was embarked on to create new definitions.
