Diana Bloomfield in Walter Magazine
Raleigh-based photographer Diana Bloomfield is the subject of a feature story in the current issue of Raleigh's city magazine Walter.
Bloomfield -- who has won multiple awards and shown her work around the world -- uses chiefly pinhole cameras and alternative printing and processing methods.
Her work ranges in subject matter from landscapes to portraits to elegantly seen fragments of the natural and built worlds.
Bloomfield unites her compositional and printing skills to produce finely-wrought meditative images that invite our repeated contemplation.
The Walter story, by Samantha Hatem, chronicles the development of Bloomfield's career and captures her distinctive vision.
This is hard-won and well-deserved recognition for the work of one of North Carolina's finest photographers.
NB the portrait of Bloomfield in her lab, at the top of this blog entry, is by Tim Lytvinenko, one of my former students, clearly doing well.
