One of Stepanakert Airport’s 120 employees walks through the terminal’s empty hallways. Formerly a military base, the airport was rebuilt at a cost of USD 5 million, but has not received any regular flights since its renovation in 2011. The Azeri government has warned that any flight approaching the airport will be shot down for violation of Azeri airspace. Currently, the only way of travelling to Nagorno Karabakh is by road through Armenia. The trip between Yerevan, Armenia’s capital and Stepanakert takes at least six hours.

Anna poses with five of her ten kids. The Nagorno Karabakh government gives a free house to each family upon the birth of their 6th child. This family received a second house upon the birth of their tenth child. What Armen and Anna really wanted was a daughter, and they finally got one after nine tries.

During the soviet regime, public religious practice was frowned upon, but Christian Armenians and Muslim Azerbaijanis lived together peacefully. Following the break-up of the Soviet Union, religion recovered its influential role in society. Nationalism feeds itself with a religious discourse which presents Nagorno Karabakh as a sacred territory for the Armenian Apostolic Church to be defended at any price.
