In 40 years, Project SAVE's archives have grown to more than 40,000 treasured photographs that document the history of Armenian individuals, families, and organizations.
Some examples of these photographs include:
- Portraits of life in cities, towns, and villages such as Arabkir, Bitlis, Van, Efkere, Urmia, Yerevan and others; views of communities and landscapes from many different regions; and historic landmarks, such as the St. Stepanos Armenian Apostolic Church in Kharpert, and images of many schools, churches, and villages which no longer exist.
- Photographic evidence of Armenians caught in the Genocide perpetrated by Ottoman Turkey in Anatolia at the beginning of the 20th century; of survivors and immigrants seeking out a life in refugee camps; and a missionary-run orphanage in Aleppo, Syria where Armenian girls crocheted items for sale.
- Newly arrived immigrants working as grape pickers in the vineyards in Fresno, CA.
- Family Sunday picnics in Worcester, MA where music and shish kebob were the regular fare.
- Armenian parishioners in Detroit celebrating the burning of the church mortgage contract.
