YEREVAN (Combined Sources)–Photographer Hrair "Hawk" Khatcherian presented his new "Soaring Hawk," 160-page photo album last week at the Nareg Arts Union Hall. The photos–taken from a helicopter–represent all regions of Armenia and historical-cultural complexes of Mountainous Karabagh–Lake Sevan–mountains–as well as different corners of the capital city of Yerevan. "Our country is amazing from above," says the Canadian Armenian photographer.
Addition works by Khatcherian–more than 50 photographs of medieval Armenian and cultural monumen’s in Venice and Rome–are featured in an exhibit that kicked-off on Monday in Yerevan to celebrate Days of Armenian-Italian Friendship.
Commissioned by Armenia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs–the exhibit of the Canadian Armenian photographer will run through October 21.
Days of Armenian-Italian Friendship–organized jointly by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Embassy of Italy in Armenia–also features a one-month festival of 15 films directed by the world-famous Taviani brothers–a National Gallery exhibit titled "See the Country of Italy," as well as a collection of treasures of the Mkhitarian Order in Saint Lazarus Island in Venice–Italy.
