about this item
A prize-winning photojournalist and visual artist, Michelle Andonian has documented people and places around the world for three decades. Now, in her most personal work,This Picture I Gift, tales from her Detroit childhood inspire a modern journey—and a timeless vision of Armenia and Armenians.
As the author comes to terms with the life of her grandmother, a survivor of the twentieth century’s first genocide, she documents a journey that spanned one hundred years and three generations through photographs and memoirs. In captivating photographic detail, the book revisits and explores lost historical lands and landmarks, bringing them together with present-day Armenia to honor an ancient people determined to live on.
