My Father, The Stranger By Diana Markosian
My Father, The Stranger
Growing up, my father felt like a secret that was being kept from me. I had few memories of us together. I remember him giving me my first doll and us dancing together in our tiny apartment in Moscow. I also remember him leaving. These images are my attempt to piece together an image of a familiar stranger.
