Please join us for this exciting artist talk with award winning artist and educator, Diana Bloomfield, as she takes us on a journey through her artist practice. We are honored to have one of Diana’s pieces in this year’s 8×10 fundraising exhibition!

“I have devoted the majority of my 40 years as a photographic artist learning and practicing “alternative” 19th century photographic printing processes. Given that this work is hand-made and often revolves around serendipity, unpredictability, imperfection, inordinate amounts of time, and always a leap of faith, the one question that consistently arises— sometimes even in my own mind— is: Why? Given the relative ease that 21st century technology offers in photographing and printing, why would any contemporary photographer devote so much effort to these ancient and time-consuming methods of visual storytelling? In my presentation, I’ll talk about how my work has evolved over the years, including the slow transition from 2-D to 3-D, where I find my inspiration, and why I am continually drawn to hand-made art to help me interpret these visual narratives.” –Diana Bloomfield
