Different Faces, Shared Hopes


In March-April 2011, International Alert commissioned a series of portraits of people throughout the conflict-torn region of Nagorno-Karabakh from international award-winning photographer Jonathan Banks. The aim of the project was to capture faces of different people that vividly represent the human side of the conflict, where each individual remains above all a human being with his or her right to be what they are, wherever they live, with dignity and in peace. This set collects not only these photos, but also quotes from a group of international experts who travelled with Alert to the conflict region to share their wisdom, experience and passion for peacebuilding with local civil society representatives, government officials, media and our counterparts in the region.
