Diana Markosian Network
Diana Markosian is a documentary photographer who pursues long-term projects in some of the most remote corners of the world. She has been deported from Azerbaijan, smuggled into Burma by a rebel army and detained by Chechen militias, all in the name of documenting a story. Along the way she has participated in the World Press Joop Swart Masterclass, received Burn Magazine's Emerging Photographer Fund and has been named one of PDN’s 30 Photographers to Watch. Her work is represented by Reportage by Getty Images and can be found in publications like the New York Times, The New Yorker and Time.
A photographer's journey to another place and another time, where she makes an attempt to piece together an image of a familiar stranger—her long-lost father.
In addition to the six top winners, 25 remarkable international photographers have garnered special praise by the jury this year.
