ABOUT 
Diana is a photographer based in Toronto, Canada. Raised in Uruguay and Brazil, she first arrived in Montreal to pursue her studies at McGill University, graduating with a Master of Arts in Hispanic Literature. She is fluent in four languages and taught Spanish at McGill University. Driven by her passion for photography, she obtained a Certificate in Photography Studies from Ryerson University. Curious and innovative, Diana continues to explore image making including crypto art, digital compositions and selective animation.
ARTIST STATEMENT
Intensely curious about the potential of the photographic medium, my work explores the possibilities of using the digital image as a form of artistic expression. I'm drawn to the abstract and lured by shapes, colour and light. As a photographer, I believe that my art needs to be open to the unpredictable and spontaneous. I like to explore, experiment and consolidate what I learn into my work.
While my portfolio includes traditional documentary and studio work, it also includes more modern approaches to image-making. I enjoy creating compilations in post-production and pushing the boundaries of traditional art. Most recently, I've been exploring the world of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) by developing art for the crypto art space. My photography travels down many different paths, just like my life.
