Hrair Sarkissian uses photography to re-evaluate historical, religious or socio-political narratives.

This event is part of the Whitechapel Gallery’s talk series Prix Pictet Conversations on Photography, which provides a platform for leading contemporary  photographers from around the world to discuss and present their practice.
