A solo photography exhibition was on display recently at the Glendale Hilton to benefit the Armenian Bone Marrow Donor Registry. The exhibition was organized by the La Crescenta resident Ellen “Alenoush” Moradian whose keen eye and passion for life and landscapes were evident in her photographs, taken during her travels around the U.S. and abroad.
More than 75 attendees enjoyed the exhibit and reception while taking the opportunity to support a noble cause.
“I have always enjoyed traveling and experiencing life and capturing the moments through my camera lens,” said Moradian. “It’s just an extraordinary perspective and experience.”
She spent her teenage years in London and it was there she discovered her interest in photography, attributing her passion to her mentor and brother-in-law.
“Although my mentor is no longer with us, his guidance has inspired me to continue and capture the beauty of everyday life,” Moradian said. The exhibition was dedicated to him and his colorful life.
During her brief remarks, Moradian thanked the guests, especially her family and close friends, for their unconditional support. Dr. Frieda Jordan of ABMDR also acknowledged Moradian and thanked the audience for their attendance and support.
“Tonight we celebrate life and how Ellen’s take on life through her camera is now generously interwoven with saving lives at ABMDR,” said Jordan..
Ellen began her photography venture more seriously in 2009 and soon it was no longer just a hobby but a serious part of her everyday life. Her philosophy regarding photography is “Simplicity”. “I attempt to capture the emotions and beauty from around us which we may not always notice due of our demanding and hectic life styles”. Her goal is to show “the life of an ordinary person in an extraordinary fashion”.
