KRIKOR JOLOLIAN (CHOLOLIAN): AN ARMENIAN PHOTOGRAPHER OF PARIS
Opening of the Temporary Exhibition at the AGMI


09.10.2018


On October 10, at 12:00 an exhibition will be opened at the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute’s temporary exhibition hall.

In the framework of the XVII Francophone Summit the Armenian Genocide Museum-Institute has organized a temporary exhibition of rare and unpublished photos of Krikor Jololian, a French-Armenian photographer, depicting 1930’s and 1940’s Parisian reality, unique episodes of the French-Armenian community and the liberation of Paris. Photo cameras will also be presented. From the orphanages of Constantinople to the capital of France, from a promising athlete to a well-known photographer, this is an odyssey of the Armenian Genocide survivor, a life where many similar fates could be reflected.

Krikor Jololian was one of the survivors of the Armenian Genocide who found a shelter in France and became a member of a big French family, and as a model and creative citizen, left his trace in the French history. The once-successful athlete became a photographer maintaining the traditions of sport photography.

The XVII Francophone Summit is a unique opportunity to present these unique episodes of the Armenian-French history and memory to the Francophone family. French-Armenian singer Charles Aznavour’s unique photos will also be exhibited.

The photos were provided by Patris Jololian, the son of the photographer and a friend of the AGMI.
