Karekin Goekjian

b. November 1949 in Beirut, Lebanon

Born into an Armenian shoemaker's family and moved to the United States in 1970. He is known for his images of southern ruins photographed by moonlight and light-painted with strobes and flashlights. His work has been widely exhibited and is in many permanent museum and corporate collections, from Paris and Milan to Washington, DC, Atlanta, and Oklahoma City. His images have appeared in Life, International Photography, and other periodicals. Two books of Karekin Goekjian's photographs have been published: "Light After Dark: A Portrait of Southern Ruins" (Lucinne, 1994) and, with Robert Peacock, "Light of the Spirit: Portraits of Outsider Artists" (University Press of Mississippi, 1998). Goekjian lives in Athens, Georgia where he runs a gallery in a historical building on the outskirts of the downtown area.
