August 2011, Dortyol, Aqdam region, Azerbaijan - Abdullah Gurbanov, village of Dortyol, Agdam region, Azerbaijan.
The Agdam region is on the border of the Nagorno Karabakh enclave, controlled by Armenia since 1994 and claimed by Azerbaijan.
In spite of a cease fire brokered in 1994 skirmishes between Azeris and Armenians are an almost daily occurence. In 2008 Abdullah Gurbanov, 23, was injured by a shell fired by Armenians. He lost both eyes and half his face was blown off. In spite of cosmetic surgery scars still disfigure his face.
