About Norm Diamond
After a long career as an interventional radiologist, Norm Diamond is now a fine art photographer living in Dallas, Texas. His work explores themes of memory and loss.
In May of 2017, Daylight Books published his monograph What Is Left Behind - Stories from Estate Sales. Diamond had visited hundreds of Dallas estate sales photographing the sadness, humor, and historical artifacts he found in the possessions left by one generation to the next. Prints from this series have been shown in multiple museums and galleries, including the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, the Griffin Museum of Photography, and the Houston Center for Photography. The Afterimage Gallery in Dallas and the Cumberland Gallery in Nashville have hosted solo shows of this work. Based on this series, Diamond was a finalist in the Photolucida Critical Mass competitions of 2015 and 2016.
Diamond has studied with Debbie Fleming Caffery, Keith Carter, Arno Minkkinen, Aline Smithson, Sean Kernan, Susan Burnstine, and, from 2013 to the present, he has been mentored by Cig Harvey. In addition to his teachers, he attributes much of his success in photography to his experiences as a physician.
