Photographer's Note

A magic place at the Suceava outskirts. The Armenian monastery of Hagigadar.

I found myself in Hagigadar on an August festive day to see Armenian pilgrims visiting the shrine. But I was a bit disappointed as the pilgrims came in much smaller number than I had anticipated.

Anyway it was really interesting to observe how people run the very last stage of pilgrimage on their knees. A deep sign of cult and devotion.
