Photographer's Note

The Church of Vanqasar is an 7th century Armenian church near Tigranakert of Artsakh. Nagorno Karabakh Republic. Tigranakert is a ruined Armenian city dating back to the Hellenistic period. It is one of several former cities in the Armenian plateau with the same name, named in honor of the Armenian king Tigranes the Great (r. 9555 B.C.), although some scholars, such as Robert Hewsen and Babken Harutyunyan, have posited that this particular Tigranakert may have been founded by Tigranes the Great's father, Tigranes I (r. ca. 12395 B.C.)
