“DESERT’S SORROWFUL MELODY: BEDOUIN ARMENIANS IN NOURHAN BALIAN’S PHOTOGRAPHS” BOOK PRESENTATION

A compilation of photos called “Desert’s Sorrowful Melody: Bedouin Armenians in Nourhan Balian’s Photographs”, has recently been published by AGBU Syria District Committee and AGBU Fund (Armenia). The book was supposed to be published in Aleppo on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide, but for known reasons it was published in Yerevan. Hrazdan Tokmajian collected famous Aleppo-Armenian photographer Nourhan Balian’s photographs of Islamized Armenians after the Armenian Genocide, who found shelter with the Bedouins. The book contains a lot of photos depicting their everyday life, as well as the desert of Der-Zor with its surrounding. You are cordially invited to participate in the “Desert’s Sorrowful Melody: Bedouin Armenians in Nourhan Balian’s Photographs” book presentation.
