Photobook - She Dreamt about a Valley in the Caucasus
"She Dreamt about a Valley in the Caucasus" is a dreamlike trip through images and poems into the Armenian landscape.
A vague but constant Soviet legacy lingers in this region of the Caucasus. Bulky monuments, modernist architectures, vast residential blocks that resemble barracks. But there's something deeper and less visible. A persistent atmosphere that accompanies the travellers and poets who cut through these Armenian roads.
