    Matteo Portigliatti

What is left once the battle is done, when war is over. Hung on houses walls are photos of friends that won't be seen again. In the rooms are shadows and darkness that you don't want to get used to. In the soldiers faces are empty eyes you can't imagine how to fill. Journey to the city of Sisian, on the border between Armenia and Azerbaijan, several weeks after the end of the conflict in Nagorno Karabak
