L. Yeghiazarov (Yeghiazaryan)
1900 - 1910s
Practically nothing is known about Yeghiazarov, one of the two or three photographers working in the city of Akhalkalaki in Georgia at the beginning of the 20th century. Surviving photographs indicate that he worked during the 1900-1910s and was only occupied with making carte de visite and cabinet portraits. Not deviating from the widely used standards of commercial studio photography, Yeghiazarov’s portraits are significant as historical-ethnographic images and also point to the rapid pace of modernization in this important hub of Armenian culture in the Russian Empire.
