Dianna Wells is a contemporary photographic artist. Her practice involves experimental hand-printed photography as a way to explore the medium of photomedia and landscapes and ecosystems undergoing rapid change. Wells aims to invite audiences to look more closely at these environments, to form narratives about constructing a new way of viewing landscapes that are overlooked.
Wells has exhibited internationally in the Julia Margaret Cameron Award in Barcelona and the Renaissance Photography Prize in London. Locally she has exhibited at Mayspace in Sydney and Bargoonga Nganjin, Fitzroy Library. Group exhibitions include the Banyule Award for Works on Paper and the Incinerator Art Award.
Wells began her career as a printmaker after studying at the Canberra School of Art; she received a Master of Fine Art at Monash University in 2013. She was awarded the 4th Noel Counihan Commemorative Art Award at the Counihan Gallery in November 2020.
