After graduating from the University of Memphis, Diana Harrington began a career in finance. While working long hours on a fixed income trading floor, Harrington started taking photographs during her lunch break, cultivating her photographic eye. Because of these photographic expeditions, Harrington began to take a serious interest in pursuing a career in the arts. Whether it’s passing strangers on the street or documenting empty car lots, Harrington tries to capture and unconventionally expose the enchantment of a typical setting using natural contour and lighting.
Harrington primarily photographs with 35mm film, enjoying its imperfection and the delayed gratification of the analog process. She has only recently incorporated digital photography into her work. In addition to her growth as a photographer, Harrington is an illustrator of fanciful and humorous all occasion cards. Often finding inspiration in her beagle, Pepper, Harrington has a growing collection of cards that make use of personified animals that are occasionally accompanied by fictional words.
Diana Harrington was born in Nashville, raised in Memphis, and currently lives in Huntsville, Alabama.
