Newzones is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new photographs by Calgary-based Dianne Bos.
If you are a follower of pinhole photography, chances are that you are aware of photographer Dianne Bos. Bos has received national and international acclaim for her innovative work with pinhole and rolleiflex photography.
Of her work Bos states: “My work challenges the view of photography as a way to “capture an instant in time.” By using pinhole cameras and long exposure times I record, not an instant, but rather the passage of time at a site. Viewers have said that my work evokes the memory-image that remains for them long after they have viewed a familiar location. I think this recognizes the importance I have always assigned to time, memory, and capturing the essence of the place, in my images of architectural icons and classic travelers destinations.”
Bos’ photographs have been exhibited internationally in numerous group and solo exhibitions since 1981. Recently Bos’s work has been included in important international exhibitions in Aleppo, Syria and Siena, Italy as well as a solo exhibitions at the Kamloops Art Gallery and the University of Waterloo Art Gallery. Her work was included in the 2005 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art.
Bos received her B.F.A. from Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick and currently divides her time between the foothills of the Rockies and the Pyrenees, France.
