Karekin  Goekjian was born in November 1949 in Beirut, Lebanon, and currently resides in Athens. He is known for capturing photographs that add light effects to southern moonlight settings. His works can be found in several collections, including those of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia and the High Museum of Art, both in Atlanta. In 1999 he opened an art gallery in Athens to showcase his work as well as works from other Georgia artists. His photographs Chocolate Box (1987), Hanna I (1987), and Screen I (1988) are part of Georgia’s State Art Collection.
