On 28 November 2014, presentation of a photo-exhibition devoted to Azerbaijan and two books by world-renowned photographer Reza Deghati took place at the Petit Palais Complex of Paris, with he organizational support of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation.

 

Azerbaijan’s First Lady, President of the Heydar Aliyev Foundation Mehriban Aliyeva and Foundation’s Vice-president Leyla Aliyeva attended the ceremony.

 

Photos collected in the books “Elegance of Fire” and “Massacre of the Innocent” were displayed at the exhibition.

 

The book “Elegance of Fire” contains photos taken by Reza Deghati since 1987 during his trips to Azerbaijan. Regions, remote villages of Azerbaijan, lifestyle of common people, their traditions etc. have been reflected in the book. The author has, at the same time, created the view of Azerbaijani culture by photos taken during national dances, concerts, exhibitions and other events.

 

And in the book “Massacre of the Innocent”, photos taken by the photo-correspondent during the Khojaly genocide committed by Armenia against Azerbaijanis in 1992 have been collected. The book also contains photos from events held in various countries of the world aiming to get the Khojaly tragedy recognized in the world, and from a township for refugees and IDPs.
