Every picture of unequaled master of light and shadow Andranik Kochar represents a photo structure, which is saturated with a combination of light shadows and soft lights. His portraits are so alive, conspicuous, modern and emotional, that they seem to be alive, breathing and living beings. In each photo he revealed the inner world of people of different fields and their way of thinking; the thing he liked to do most of all.
Andranik Kochar immortalized many Armenian great people-actors, sculptors, artists, musicians in his portraits, just like world-wide famous photographer Yousuf Karsh immortalized the most famous people in the world in his photos.
Kochar’s portraits help us to make notion about prominent Armenians. Many of his portraits became symbols.
