The Wounded Eaglet: A Photo Story of Karabakh

Demir Sonmez is of Kurdish and Armenian descent, originally from Turkey. He has been living in Geneva, Switzerland since the 1990s, where he is known as “the photographer of the oppressed”.

When the 2020 Karabakh War started, the freelance photographer felt the need to be on the ground, with “his people”, as he told us. In a 128 pages book titled The Wounded Eaglet, Sonmez collected photos of the war punctuated by the atrocities he witnessed.
