Diana Cheren Nygren is a fine art photographer from Boston, Massachusetts. She was originally trained as an art historian with a focus on Modern and Contemporary Art, and the relationship of artistic production to socio-political context. The often abstract composition in her photographic work reflects this training. Within the carefully composed structure of her photographs, she seeks out small uncanny details both in everyday settings and extraordinary ones. She aims for the shot that captures the imperfections and idiosyncrasies that make people and places beautiful. Diana currently lives in Brookline with her husband, dog, and three children.
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.
