Dayna Bartoli is a visual artist from Arizona whose working methods involve photography, bookmaking, and mixed media objects. She graduated from Arizona State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in photography. Somewhat juxtaposing her education in the arts, Dayna worked as an Ophthalmic Photographer for several years, photographing retinal blood vessels and circulation patterns. Many of her projects are driven by a fascination with natural phenomena and science.
In Autumn 2013 Dayna began her studies for the Master of Fine Arts program at the Trondheim Academy of Fine Art in Norway. Her master thesis work will culminate in an exhibition in Spring 2015.
Dayna’s photographs have been published in Harper’s Magazine. She was named one of Lens Culture's “21 New and Emerging Photographers” of 2013, and has been a featured artist on Art Photo Index.
