terra arMEnia – a photographer’s journey into a people’s identity



This documentary project follows the journey of photographer Erol Gurian as he travels the world to create his recent multimedia exhibition which attempts to understand the collective identity of the Armenian people living in the diaspora. It is a story about heritage, identity and the very personal connection between each Armenian and their ancestral homeland Armenia.
Erol discovers his own connection to his Armenian heritage in the process and finds an endless source of inspiration in the traditions and history of his people.
Director/Producer Blake Ryan Lewis and Producer Janine Stengel-Lewis began following Erol when he started the project in 2013, and have collaborated in the multimedia exhibition at the Aspekte Gallery in the Gasteig Center, Munich in March 2015
