Taylor-Lind's "National Womb" explores the effects of the "Birth Encouragement Program" implemented by the Nagorno-Karabakh government in an effort to repopulate the region. Her work raises thoughtful questions about the effectiveness of the program and the future of the state by revealing the lives of women who live in the area. Her work was recently featured in The New York Times: http://www.pikto.com/blog/2011/12/pikto-top-pick-winner-in-nytimes/.
