Armenian hermit

Article from ArmeniaNow about Samvel Gyulizadyan , an architect, married and with two children, who abandoned family and city life for an isolated village, taking up residence in an abandoned house. His motive of peace and quiet overrides other concerns, his chief challenges being laundry and bread baking. Gyulizadyan plays an accordion and tries bee-keeping for money, going to the nearest town twice a year for provisions. His wife visits once a year. Several well-done black and white photographs.
