Diana Markosian talk – Monday 19th October 2015

Diana Markosian talkOne of the Speakers in our 2015-2016 Programme of Talks has attracted a great deal of interest and we have decided to make this special event available to members from other Camera Clubs, members of The Royal Photographic Society and students at Yorkshire’s Art Colleges.

Diana Markosian is an Armenian-American photographer whose work explores the relationship between memory and place. She received her master’s degree from Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism at age 20. Her work has since taken her to some of the most remote corners of the world, where she has worked on both personal and editorial work. Her images can be found in publications like The New York Times, The New Yorker and Time Magazine. Her work is represented by Reportage by Getty Images.

In April 2015, Diana was awarded The Chris Hondros Fund’s first Emerging Photographer Award – a huge achievement and richly deserved!

UPDATE: Over £1,100 was raised from print sales for Diana’s Survivors of the Armenian Genocide fund. Thank you to everyone who came to the talk and especially to Diana for a remarkable evening.
