In the past, the city of Mush, which is now located in Turkey, was a major Armenian center. At the beginning of the 20th century, more than ten thousand Armenians lived there.
By 2015, that is, exactly 100 years after the Armenian Genocide, almost all ancient buildings were demolished as the Turkish government have been actively building up these territories.
Nevertheless, the few local Armenians are trying to preserve the traditions of their ancestors.
Photographers Anahit Hayrapetyan (Armenia) and Serra Akcan (Turkey) observed how people live in Mush and another area nearby, Sason, in March-April 2015.
