“NEVERLAND”: photographing Armenia. 


In September 2011 I was awarded the possibility of spending a month at ACOSS Artist residency, an experience which was supported by a grant from the Arts Council England. “Neverland” (2011, Arts Council England Sponsorship) focuses on the identities of Armenian communities, with particular interest for portraying people in peripheral areas of Armenia as well as Nagorno Karabagh.


This series forms an exploration of borders; by combining artistic portraiture and photojournalistic reportage it composes an exploration of identity, memory and territory and how these have been shaped by history and events. Whilst working in Armenia, I became increasingly attentive to the construction of trans-national identities, which form in relation to communal culture and spoken language with disregard of the political definition of nationality.

My interest in analyzing individual, cultural and social identities also reflects my own family’s trans-national and trans-cultural background. The experience at ACOSS has been of inspiration for my current work: I am researching and photographing the borders of Europe and the European Union, scrutinized in their overlapping configurations as a political, geographical and cultural entities.


Paola is a London based fine art photographer; from an early stage my work has been concerned with the representation of individual and cultural identity, its shifts and states of transition.Paola is experienced in both digital and analogue technologies, using cameras of various formats and is also available for digital retouching and Photoshop tuition.She has worked in the photography departments of various universities as well as being a tutor in digital retouching at Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
“I am very interested in exhibition my photographic work at the Gyumri Biennale.”
