The women I photograph never consider themselves outside the norms of society. Yet every time they walk along streets of Yerevan, people look with amazement.

In an environment that is often conservative and controlled by men, these women separate themselves by dressing differently or wearing bright make up.

If it is possible to live and be like these women choose to be in Armenia, then it is also possible for Armenian women to make many more steps towards action, work, love and freedom in their lives.
