About Arsineh Khachikian

Born and raised in the suburbs of Washington, DC, Arsineh grew up studying graphic design, photography, and the Armenian community. She moved to Armenia in 2006 where she co-founded Deem Communications, a marketing and advertising agency, for which she serves as Creative Director. With a passion for photography, she continues to share her work with the world.

Throughout her life, Arsineh has been very active in Armenian community organizations. During her years working for the ANCA in the Washington headquarters, Arsineh documented many historic events in the Armenian-American political arena through her camera lens - mass protests, encounters with high ranking officials, pivotal congressional hearings, as well as System of a Down's participation in the 2007 campaign for Armenian Genocide recognition on Capitol Hill. She worked on the development of the Armenian record label Pomegranate Music, as well as other Armenian music endeavors, receiving Armenian Music Awards in 2002 and 2005 for Best Album Cover and Design for 'Gor Mkhitarian: Yeraz' and 'Fortress City: Various Artists.'

Arsineh is proud to present her new publication 'My Nation: The Trials & Trails of an Armenian Repatriate.' Through her photographs and short essays, Arsineh explores the scope of her experience and growth as an Armenian and the many facets of the evolving Armenian nation. She presents this unique journal in a one-time only San Francisco visit, as part of a world-wide tour.
