Tennessee artist Diane Fox captures the perceived reality posed by dioramas in this series of photographs taken in natural history museums around the country and abroad. Traditionally, dioramas allow museum visitors to experience wildlife firsthand using staged animals and painted backgrounds to create realistic fabrications. Fox’s photographs, however, work to break the illusion of these constructed scenes and ask the viewer to reexamine their relationship with nature.
Diane Fox is a Distinguished Lecturer Emerita in the College of Architecture and Design at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville where she taught photography and graphic design for over 20 years. Fox has a Master of Fine Arts from The University of Tennessee, Knoxville and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Middle Tennessee State University.
