How We Live: Life on the Margins in Armenia

Southland photographer Sara Anjargolian has a new book out documenting the rise in poverty in Armenia. It's called How We Live: Life on the Margins in Armenia. Since we have the largest Armenian community outside of the homeland right here, Anjargolian hopes her book will bring awareness and a call to action. KPCC's Shirley Jahad went to see images from the book at Casitas Studios in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles.
