Photographs of the Armenian genocide and historiographical stakes

di Dzovinar Kevonian
in Memoria e Ricerca n.s. 20 (2005), p. 93

The first interest of the article lies in the reconstitution of the whole collection of photographs that had been taken during the Armenian genocide. The author investigates the meanders of their diffusion, when the Turk regime had forbidden photographing the event. But the interest principally concerns the way that collection was used for one’s own end during the whole century. In that respect, she analyzes the nature and the role of the photographs which are published in the battle for the official recognition of the Armenian genocide.
