"Photography has allowed me to slow down, look inward, and learn to be quiet with myself"

- Diana Markosian

Diana Markosian is known for her collaborative approach to storytelling, which embraces uncertainty as a tool to craft the narrative. She explores themes of family and immigration through a layered, interdisciplinary process that uses video, photography, found images, drawings and historical ephemera.

Markosian was born in Moscow, Russia, and her family immigrated to the United States when she was a child, leaving her father behind. In 2010, she received her master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.  She has worked on assignment for publications including National Geographic Magazine, The New Yorker and The New York Times.

Her work has been recognized by World Press Photo, the Chris Hondros Photographer Grant, Magnum Emerging Photographer Fund and the Firecracker Grant.

Markosian became a Magnum Nominee in 2016.
