A flock of birds flies over the coast of Lake Van in eastern Turkey where the largest population of Turkey's Armenians had been living for centuries. On April 24, 1915, as the Ottoman Empire was falling and the fiercely nationalistic Young Turks movement took power, a deportation decree was issued in Constantinople. In the following years, it is estimated that over one million Armenians were deported and massacred in Turkey and what is now northern Syria. For more about the artist see: http://krcphoto.com/#.
