The first time I came across Tufankjian's work was about six years ago; it was during one of my aimless bookstore strolls that the Armenian last name caught my eye. The name was printed on the cover of a book with a picture of then-newly elected U.S. president Barack Obama shaking supporters' hands with the words 'Yes We Can' plastered on top in big, block letters. I must say, I was quite proud to see an Armenian photographer covering one of the most memorable U.S. presidential campaigns in recent years. Through her book, Scout had presented a behind-the-scenes look at one of the most talked-about moments of the time, a perspective that the public was rarely given a chance to see. I began following Scout's work closely in the coming years. From her travels to Eastern Anatolia and Haiti, to her coverage of the revolution in Egypt in 2011 and 2012, her work captured the truest human emotions in a variety of settings and situations. Through this book and her beautiful pictures that bring life to its pages, Tufankjian has been able to brilliantly tell the world that a hundred years after the Armenian people were destined to be forgotten, they continue to not only survive, but thrive all over. From the beginning of this project it was obvious that it was a true labour of love; something she believed in wholeheartedly. And the end result is proof of that.
