Artist statement

Diana Debord was born in Novara, Italy in 1984.
She is a self-taught fine art photographer with a special fascination for dreamlike, surreal atmospheres.

The research and attention to detail and colors that characterize her work clearly recall the Pre Raphaelite Brotherhood, as well as the female figures that are always graceful and ethereal. Her interest for the neurology of dreams and lucid dreaming led her to develop a style that merges symbolist and surrealist themes: the search for ego and madness, death, and the connection with the natural world.

The ongoing study of color contributes to the creation of very different works but always connected by dreamlike atmospheres, making the production particularly varied.
In 2009 her first solo exhibition "Ophelia's Dream" in her hometown Novara; she has exhibited in Italy and abroad ever since. In 2013 she is awarded with the Juror Award of Merit at the Grand Prix de la Découverte. Some of her images are represented internationally by Trevillion Images and she is a contributor for photography magazine Dodho.

Her intent is to portray fragments of dreams, the same way we remember them in the morning.
