fashion show in in yerevan, 1985.

inscription on the wall says something about soviet-czechoslovakia friendship. i guess the design is from czechoslovakia. note how ‘sad’ everything is, in this try to make something shiny and attractive. this expresses sovietness a lot.

բնօրինակ սփիւռքում(եւ մեկնաբանութիւննե՞ր)

Too often people with some talent go where there is some money to be made. They begin to trade a bit of their talent for a bit of money, then a little more, and finally they have nothing left to themselves. In Czechoslovakia we didn’t have many freedoms, and particularly not the freedom to make money. But that led us to choose professions that we really loved. I always photographed with the idea that no one would be interested in my photos, that no one would pay me, that if I did something I only did it for myself.
