Life During Covid-19 Lockdown – View From My Balcony
"As I was documenting life in Armenia from my balcony during the lockdown of March 2020, I saw my neighbor, a few apartments to my left, looking down his balcony. The expression on his face poignantly captured the mood of the times in a way that I could never express in words."
