Photo by Anush Babajanyan / VII. Anjelika Ayaryan, 10, stands under a tree as her friend Tatevik picks berries in Shushi, Nagorno-Karabakh, on June 3, 2017. Anjelika is one of the seven Ayaryan children. At the time this photograph was taken, she lived and studied in Shushi together with her two sisters.

Anush Babajanyan has launched a campaign for pre-orders of her photo book on Nagorno-Karabakh, called “A Troubled Home.” The book will include her work in the region through the last five years.

"After photographing during the four-day war, I have worked here on every possible occasion, while living in Yerevan, Armenia. I began documenting stories of large families in Nagorno-Karabakh, in 2017. While working on this long-term project I met the liveliest children who took me climbing up the hills above Martakert, parents who could not imagine their lives anywhere else but at home in Stepanakert, Martakert, Shushi, Charektar, Nor Erkej. These are the people whose stories I want to tell in this book."
