Diana Markosian is an American-Russian artist belonging to Armenian descent who works as a photographer, author, and documentarian. She is well-known for her picture essays, such as Inventing My Father, which is about her bond with her dad, and 1915, which is about the Armenian genocide.
Markosian was born in the Russian capital of Moscow. Her mother and brother shifted to California with her in 1996, while her father stayed in Russia. She was out of touch with him until she was 23 when she discovered her dad in Armenia 15 years later.
Markosian received a bachelor’s degree in history and world affairs from the University of Oregon in 2008 and a master’s degree in journalism from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism at the age of 20.
Diana was assigned to Azerbaijan as a photojournalist for Bloomberg News in 2011, but she was refused entry because the nation was at war with Armenia at the time.
Markosian is of Armenian descent but not a resident there. Because of her Armenian surname, the administrators said they were unable to provide her with the “protection” she needed.
