In Georgian Village, Armenians And Azeris Find Common Ground

The Georgian village of Tsopi, located just a few kilometers from the Armenian border, is home to both ethnic Azeris and ethnic Armenians. Although tensions linger between Armenia and Azerbaijan over the Nagorno-Karabakh war of the 1990s, the two groups coexist peacefully in this remote Georgian setting. British journalist and photographer Onnik James Krikorian, based in the Caucasus region since 1998, has been documenting instances of peaceful cohabitation between the two sides in an effort to create a new narrative of reconciliation at a grassroots level. He also uses his work to train journalists and engage young activists in discussing the unresolved conflict. For more photos by Krikorian, see his website. (14 PHOTOS)
