Diana Barker Price searches for unusual lighting and unexpected combinations when photographing the natural world. She works mostly in series, thinking of the images as elements or themes within a larger visual story.
Recently, Diana received national and international recognition for her photographs, including First Place and Honorable Mention Awards from International Photography Awards (IPA); multiple selections for Soho Photo Gallery's National Exhibition (in years juried by the VP of Photographs for Christie's NY; former Visuals Editor of The New Yorker and Director of Photography of Vanity Fair); and the People’s Choice Award, Third Place Award, and Honorable Mentions from Prix de la Photographie Paris (PX3).
Since graduating from the University of Michigan with a degree in History of Art and a minor in English Literature, Diana has enjoyed merging the visual arts with writing and storytelling. After college she studied art, design and photography in Los Angeles and worked at the Frederick Weisman Art Foundation, Pacific Design Center, with interior designers and as a photography assistant.
Diana wrote and managed the Los Angeles Times’ Summer Camp Fund; and created instructional materials for publication, programming and exhibits for the California Science Center. Diana published poetry for children in Jack and Jill Magazine and the National Science Teachers Association Magazine, Science and Children. She has edited published books on autism and organizational development, and was managing editor for the Journal of Transformative Education. More recently, Diana worked on eight sold studio screenplays as a story, plot and character editor, including Take the Lead starring Antonio Banderas and The American starring George Clooney.
Throughout her life, Diana has returned to the woods and ponds of Southeastern Massachusetts. Her fondest memories are from this area and it is the place she now calls home. Her current creative projects include a novel about a twelve-year-old reinventing herself as a tango champion; several photographic series that integrate story-telling with Diana’s love of nature; and a collaboration with the William Benton Museum of Art, pairing text from Eboo Patel’s book Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice and the Promise of America with images that reinforce the book’s overarching themes. She is a volunteer steward for The Nature Conservancy, writes for Cape Cod Bay Watch and supports Friends of Myles Standish State Forest. Diana is a juried Gallery Artist at the Cape Cod Art Association in Barnstable, Plymouth Art Guild and South Shore Art Center in Cohasset, Massachusetts.
