Dianne Bos has been exhibiting her photo based work for over 40 years. She has evolved various thematic bodies of work, and merged technical innovations to create new visual hybrids: her innovative uses of pinhole, film, camera obscura, photogram, installation, and cyanotype all explore the world around us.
‘The excitement, for me, lies not in photographing and reproducing something I can see, but in revealing the imperceptible (and maybe only the imagined) using the physics of light and time and traditional darkroom techniques.’
Bos has been the recipient of many awards and grants and has also been nominated twice for the Scotia Bank Photography Award.
Her work has been presented internationally and she is a sought after presenter on alternative photography techniques. Her work is represented in many private and public collections including The National Gallery of Canada, Glenbow Museum, Art Gallery of Hamilton, The McMaster Museum of Art.
