This past June, my husband, Serkan, a photojournalist, and I were awarded a federal grant to support our documentary project, “A Shrinking Community: Vakifli, Turkey’s Last Armenian Village.”
We spent three weeks in this tiny village of 130 people taking photographs, making a few videos, conducting interviews and, really, just being a couple of journalists. The people we met were wonderful and friendly, embracing us with open arms despite our digging into their personal lives.
I am now pleased to announce that our project is available for your viewing and reading pleasure at vakifli.com. Please check it out!
