The Mirror-Spectator is pleased to present a series of photo essays prepared by the students of Professor Ken Martin at the American University of Armenia Summer Program of 2019 in Yerevan. Martin teaches during the regular school year at Suffolk University, at the Communication, Journalism and Media Department in Boston. But first, please read Martin’s introduction below.
Students in our Lens on Armenia: Photojournalism in Yerevan 2019 summer course at the American University of Armenia produced final photo essay projects about topics that they each had interest in. The projects were a culmination of everything they had studied in class including basic photography, camera works, professional photojournalism practice and history of photography and the great photojournalists. Photojournalism in our definition, beyond being the picture of the day, is photo reportage at the intersection with fine art. Creation of a visual narrative is a tough job for many advanced students and emerging photographers, but I think viewers may agree that our students have done exceptionally well in present interesting aspects of life in Armenia today!
