Humanity During War is a photographic portrayal of various aspects of civilian life during the 2020 war in Nagorno-Karabakh, known as Artsakh to the indigenous Armenians. Ezras Tellalian, a third-generation Armenian-American descendant of the genocide, travelled to the war zone to capture the experiences of civilians caught up in an unwanted geopolitical conflict with deep ethnohistorical roots. His photographs, intertwined with simple yet deep descriptions of the people he encountered, give light to typically neglected wartime narratives in which the human drives for life, peace, and love are stronger than the desires to kill, to destroy, and to hate. In an often-overlooked corner of the world, Humanity During War powerfully and personally depicts the toll of daily shelling and displacement on everyday people while acknowledging their resilience and hope.

All profits earned by the book will be donated to trustworthy organizations in Artsakh and Armenia that are providing humanitarian and psychological aid in order to address the consequences of the war.
