citybooks Yerevan

Previously announced and presently in full swing: citybooks Yerevan!

serge van duijnhoven © renske van mierloDutch author Serge van Duijnhoven has already returned from his stay in Armenia. His extensive blog posts from this extraordinary city form the foundations for his citybook Cemetery of the Alphabet. Curious about this rather special alphabet? The original Dutch version and the Armenian translation are already online, and the French and English versions are underway!

In the meantime, it has been announced who will provide the visual component: the adventurous Belgian photographer Pieter-Jan De Pue. Previously, Pieter-Jan has documented contemporary life in Iran for deBuren, in the investigative report Iran op de grens. (Iran on the Border).

The Armenian videographers Arpa Hagoupian and Nare Hovhannisyan have already made the City One Minutes of their hometown Yerevan. In September they will bring these films to Belgium, where they will also put together the Turnhout City One Minutes.
