STATEMENT

After working for many years as a photojournalist, in the early 2000s I decided to refocus my photography toward the artistic side. I quickly discovered, however, that professional photography had lost value in the digital age. I turned to painting on canvas for a while, but my true love remained behind the camera. One day, I had a long conversation with renowned artist Ali Cavanaugh, and she helped me begin thinking beyond the traditional lens. While traditional photography has been trapped within a frame, its contemporary equivalent need not be so confined. I created my first 3D photograph shortly thereafter.

 

BIO

Diane L. Wilson was born in Pittsburgh and has worked as a professional photographer for more than 30 years. She has taken her experience in traditional media such as photography and oil on canvas, and combined it with techniques she developed while working as an artist in Eastern Virginia in the 1990s.  Her contemporary 3D photography has emerged from those influences.

Diane is a graduate of the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Her art can be found in private collections across the United States.

Diane lives and works an hour south of St. Louis  in historic Ste. Genevieve, Missouri, with her husband and children.
