    My Father, the Stranger

    In her most recent project, Diana Markosian, a Reportage emerging talent, wrote about and photographed her attempt to reconnect with her estranged father. A version of the story appeared in yesterday’s New York Times:

    I knocked on the door of a stranger. I had traveled halfway around the world to see him.

    My father.

    I was 7 years old when I last saw him. Nearly 15 years later, I stood in the courtyard of his home in Armenia … You could say that I had come home. But that wasn’t how it felt.

    Over the weekend, Diana was awarded Burn Magazine's Emerging Photographer Grant for this work. You can also see a write-up about her on the New York Times's Lens Blog.
