<1px leading:20px="">Daniel Zvereff grew up in Portland, Oregon. A first generation American, his Russian family emigrated to the USA in 1951 after decades of stateless exile in China, but not before a three-year stint as refugees in the Philippines, having been exiled once again by the communist party in China in 1948. Towards the end of his education, Daniel decided to retrace his family’s epic journey across Russia, through Mongolia and into China, reconnecting with his ancestor’s language and culture. The people he met became the co-authors of his journals, his experiences with them inseparable elements of his creative work, a style that has stuck ever since. He currently resides in Brooklyn.
