• An old man reading prayers at a memorial cemetery in downtown Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, where Azeri soldiers killed in Nagorny Karabakh war are buried.
  • Elman Mamedov from the Azeri capital of Baku. The father of three went to fight, he says, so that other peoples' children would not die.
  • Ilchin Gasanov, 40, the only Azeri sniper to have fought in the Karabakh war, is now homeless and lives in a local office of the Veterans' Union in Baku, where he is pictured next to the portrait of the late president of Azerbaijan, Heydar Aliyev.
  • Soviet-era IDs of Elmira Gusinova: her Komsomol ID, Communist Party ID and her military record. She has not seen her home in the town of Akdam since 1993. Later it became one of the most famous ghost cities in the world. But at that time she left her post of school deputy head and took up a gun. But this did not help her stay in her Motherland.
  • Akdam, the hometown of Elmira Gusinova, as it looks today.
  • The portrait of the late Valery Dzalayan, an offspring of the princes who once ruled the area, where he was killed during Karabakh war
  • Albert Sarkisyan, 50, from Karabakh, a sculptor, painter and accomplished musician. It's hard to believe that he once carried a gun.
  • David Akopyan, 34, from Karabakh, became a disabled war veteran at the age of 19 after he was very badly wounded. But take today he drives a car, goes hunting, fishing and is preparing for his wedding day.
  • Soviet-era license plates of the republic of Azerbaijan are today used in Karabakh to build a fence at an amusement park
  • Tigran Bagdasaryan, 43, a former infantryman who today works as a security guard at an open pit, which is a 10-minute walk from his old battlefield
  • A rusty APC lying on the back of the road close to the border between Karabakh and Azerbaijan. No one remembers now whether it belonged to Azeri or Armenians. Nagorny Karabakh is like a piece of meat fought over by dogs, say local people.
