Photographer's Note

In the outskirts of Gyumri, I came acros this girl and she accepted to pose.
What stroke me was the mixture of looking and the clothing and jewels reminescent of the old days when Gyumri was a close neighbour to the city of Kars in eastern Turkey.
Even if the city is rather modern (but it was severely touched by the 1988 earthquake) and the people are extremely friendly and jokingfull, the minds of the locals are generally rather conservative, e.g. on the position of women.
