Diana Cheren Nygren is a fine art and portrait photographer based in Brookline, Massachusetts. In her work she seeks out small uncanny details both in everyday settings and extraordinary ones. She aims not for the most posed shot, but one that captures the imperfections and idiosyncrasies that make people and places beautiful. Her work is about finding the beauty, often in ordinary people, objects, and places.
Diana’s most recent projects interrogate the distinction between painting and photography. They examine how we read what we see in the world - especially color, light, and space - by focussing closely on objects so that the three dimensional world becomes abstracted and flattened within the photograph.
