The Arrival. From the series Santa Barbara. 2018. “I was seven when my family arrived in America. The year was 1996. The Soviet Union had long collapsed, and by then, so had my parents’ marriage.
In the evenings, in our tiny Moscow apartment, my family would watch Santa Barbara, the first American show broadcast on Russian state television. For my mom, Santa Barbara represented a dream. One night, she woke me up, and said we were going on a trip. We left without saying goodbye to my father, and the next day landed in a new world: America.” - Diana Markosian Copyright © Diana Markosian
