Photo Center NW is pleased to host documentary photographer and writer Diana Markosian for a lecture focused on developing a personal visual style as a documentary photographer and photojournalist. Markosian’s reporting has taken her from Russia’s North Caucasus mountains, to the ancient Silk Road in Tajikistan and overland to the remote Wakhan Corridor in northeastern Afghanistan. Her projects have focused on topics ranging from the coming of age of young girls in Chechnya (Goodbye My Chechnya), long-term effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster (Chernobyl’s Last Breath), and the lives of handicapped orphans in Russia (Blue Eyes), among others. Markosian’s images have appeared in The New York Times, The Sunday Times, Marie Claire, Foreign Policy, Foto8, Time.com, World Policy Journal, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International, among others.

Her work has been recognized by a diverse range of organizations including UNICEF, AnthropoGraphia, Ian Parry Scholarship, Marie Claire Int’l, National Press Photography Association, Columbia University and Getty Images. In 2011, Diana’s image of the terrorist mother was awarded photo of the year by Reuters. She holds a masters from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism.
Diana Markosian will also lead an introductory workshop on photojournalism and documentary photography May 11, 12, and 15th — click here for details.
