Snow blankets the countryside along a road between Van and Dogubayazit, Turkey, close to the border with present-day Armenia. Eastern Turkey is where the largest population of Turkey’s Armenians had been living for centuries. After the deportation decrees were issued in 1915, almost all of the Armenian communities in the Lake Van area were wiped out.
Kathryn Cook’s project Memory Denied: Turkey and the Armenian Genocide explores the memory of the Armenian massacres that occurred during the decline of the Ottoman Empire in the early 20th century. Recognized as “genocide” today by more than a dozen countries, Turkey still vigorously rejects that claim. Cook’s work follows the remains and traces of an ambiguous, dark history — the definition of which is still being fought over nearly a century later.
