The year 2015 marked the centennial of the Armenian Genocide. To have my project ready for that date, I started to explore the relationship of diaspora Armenians to their homeland Armenia in 2012. They told me about their favorite places and the stories behind them. After photographing and interviewing them in the US, France, Lebanon and Germany, I went to Armenia to shoot the respective locations. This project has been exhibited in Munich, Berlin and Landshut. It drew far more than 10,000 visitors.
