K. G. Grigoryants
1900 - 1910s
Facts regarding G. K. Grigoriants' biography and practice are scant. The few photographs bearing the backstamp of his studio located on the Alexandrovskaya Street in Kars, do not give a complete picture of his creative or professional ambitions or inclinations. It is obvious, however, that Grigoriants was taken by the turn of the 20th century fashion for glamorous photography techniques of the Belle Epoque. Through a rather elemental and superficial application of these decorative tactics, the photographer attempted to bestow his portraits of diverse sitters with a certain sense of psychological depth and emotional mood.
