For instance, for taking photos of a medlar I reached to “Shikahogh” State Reserve and for a rosehip to “Arevik” National Park. The 30% of photos I have shot in our garden (Echmiadzin region), “the author said, and added:
“The most important are not the blossoms but the fruits that arise as a result. Like the human: the child is not important, but what kind of man he will become in the future. I would like to convey this idea. “According to Armine Halajyan, head of the Public Information Department of the UN Office in Yerevan the forests and trees should be treated with great care so that no harm wil be posed to nature and people. “It is particularly important to fruit trees, those are represented in the exhibition.”
