Review / Description
Famous Armenian photojournalist Ruben Mangasaryan had established his new endeovor – TRAVELER – Armenia, back in 2008, the addition to National Geographic Magazine.
His goal was to create an Armenian version of the worldwide known National Geographic, TRAVELER.
That was a special agreement with the “big shark” in the tourism business like the TRAVELER is now. It was a unique opportunity for Armenian traveling businesses and media to be presented under the label of National Geographic. Anticipated outcomes were obvious for every interested party in Armenia: photojournalism in first place and the traveling journalism, in general.
Ruben was able to team up with dedicated to his vision journalists, photographers in Armenia to present to the world the Armenian landscapes, untouched nature and puzzled lifestyle cities and people living in ancient country who has gained its independence few years ago.
“Armenia Undiscovered” was the first, special issue of Ruben Mangasaryan’s enterprise.
The concept of this special issue is to show the unknown faces of the country or the famous places from new angles.
